COVID-19: Strategies in Germany - Schools, Masks, Testing and Vaccinations
Dr. Kevin Kavanagh from Health Watch USAsm and Dr. Sebastian Hoehl from the University Hospital in Frankfurt, Germany discuss COVID-19 precautions taken in Germany and the United States. Schools in Germany are open but if community rates are high students wear surgical grade masks (not cloth masks) in the classroom. Those unvaccinated (both students and teachers) are tested three times a week. Home rapid testing is readily available for the general public in Germany. Germany is currently vaccinating individuals down to the age of 12. They are using the Oxford Astrazeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccine for those 60 years of age and older and the mRNA vaccines for those below the age of 60. In the United States we are going to soon have the FDA decision on an Emergency Use Authorization for the Pfizer/BioNTech Vaccine for children down to age 5. So far the data shows the vaccine to be very safe in this age group and able to elicit a strong immunological response. Similar to the USA, Germany also has higher rates of COVID-19 in populations who are socioeconomically disadvantaged.  Jack Pattie Show.   Sept. 24, 2021.
