Prime Minister on Corona myths: no villain who wants to fool everyone

People are now also protesting in Tübingen against the corona policy of the federal and state governments. Baden-Württemberg’s Prime  Minister  Winfried Kretschmann addressed these demonstrations, among other things, in his new video podcast on Tuesday. “The right of assembly is a fundamental right,” said Kretschmann. However, he also sees that “extremists and populists” are using demonstrations for their purposes. For example, they claim that Microsoft founder Bill Gates is behind Corona in order to secretly establish world domination. This “conspiracy theory”, according to the Prime Minister, is absurd: “There is no villain here who wants to fool us all.” But there is a bad pandemic that is affecting society. Kretschmann called for a “strong condemnation” of myths. The protest meetings also include people who refuse vaccinations and are against obligatory vaccinations. Neither he nor the federal government, said Kretschmann, wanted to introduce a legal obligation to vaccinate. On the contrary: he would be “very happy if we had a vaccine.”
