German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier warned at a general meeting in Frankfurt that the coronavirus pandemic will cause long-term harm to society.
Steinmeier said in his closing speech at the meeting: “The social consequences of the virus will not disappear with the final vaccination and the disappearance of the final means.”
The German President predicts that the old system will not be completely restored.
“But reuniting with family and friends we know, shaking hands, hugging and supporting the masses-we all look forward to this,” Steinmeier said.
He added: “We have fought fiercely over the virus and mandatory wearing of masks, restrictions and mitigation, kindergartens and schools, vaccines and vaccination priorities.”
The German President said that many people have lost contact, friendships have broken down, and families have been divided.
Steinmeier said, but the Universal Assembly has shown that Catholics and Protestants have more in common than differences, adding that this also applies to society as a whole.
Therefore, he called for the construction of bridges between bridges that are hostile to the pandemic.
