Spahn: “Measles protection is child protection, and a maser protection law is a child protection law”

Mister President! Dear Colleagues!

Measles protection is child protection, and a masquerade law is a child protection law. It is precisely this protection of the youngest that concerns us with this law. Because measles are not – it has already been pointed out – a harmless childhood disease; Measles are among the most contagious infectious diseases in humans. They are highly contagious. If someone sneezes here who has measles, the droplets in that room still present a risk of infection for up to two hours. There is no therapy for measles.

That's why we put a stop to community facilities, especially for the youngest who can not decide for themselves, such as day care centers and schools. It's also about medical staff, because of course, in the hospital, you should be sure that you will not be unnecessarily infected there.

Incidentally, what is also included in the bill, Mr Spangenberg, is that compulsory vaccination will also be required in future in collective housing for asylum seekers. If all that was right, what you here …
