Germany shortens Covid natural immunity status — RT World News

https://www.rt.com/news/546264-germany-shortens-covid-natural-immunity/

In new guidelines published by the Robert Koch Institute, Germans who have recovered from Covid-19 will
only have immunity status for a period of 90 days, down from 180 days.

On Friday, the Robert Koch Institute, a federal agency responsible for disease control and prevention, published new guidance based on developments concerning the Covid-19 pandemic.

Under the new guidance, people previously infected with Covid-19 will only have
immunity status for 90 days. The old rules stated that prior infection could be used as proof of immunity for 180 days.

Proof of prior infection must be provided using nucleic acid detection or a PCR test. Anyone who can show a positive PCR test result
that is at least 28 days old is considered recovered.

The measures came into force on Saturday.By comparison, in Switzerland, the period for which someone can claim immunity following Covid-19 infection is currently 365 days from the test results.

Germany is facing a new
wave of infection driven by the more contagious Omicron variant. The
seven-day incidence rate given by the Robert Koch Institute on Sunday
was 515.7 infections per 100,000 people.

German Chief Pathologist Sounds Alarm On Fatal Vaccine Injuries, Free West Media, 3 August 2021

The director of the Pathological Institute of the University of Heidelberg, Peter Schirmacher, has carried out over forty autopsies on people who had died within two weeks of their vaccination.

The regional daily Augsburger Allgemeine reported: “Schirmacher assumes that 30 to 40 percent of them died from the vaccination. In his opinion, the frequency of fatal consequences of vaccinations is underestimated.

[Schirmacher] received support from his own ranks, and the Federal Association of German Pathologists stated that more autopsies of vaccinated people who died within a certain time frame after vaccination should be performed.

The pathologist cited “rare, severe side effects of the vaccination – such as cerebral vein thrombosis or autoimmune diseases”.

[Schirmacher] is not an opponent of vaccinations – Schirmacher himself has been vaccinated.
