World Medical Association President Montgomery Calls for Tests for Returnees from Travel!
The President of the World Medical Association is calling for a mandatory test for those returning from vacation without exception. Frank Ulrich Montgomery is worried about the number of breakthroughs in the vaccine.
Frank Ulrich Montgomery, president of the World Medical Association, advocates mandatory testing for all travelers returning from abroad. Montgomery said in a statement (Saturday) to the newspapers of the Funke media group that, without exception, anyone entering "including those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered" must present a negative corona test. Such a step makes sense. Since August 1, all people from the age of twelve must test negative, regardless of whether they are arriving by plane, car or train, unless they have a Corona vaccine or are recovering from an illness.
Montgomery cited the growing number of so-called vaccine breakthroughs to justify the need for mandatory testing for all people returning from vacation. The Robert Koch Institute has so far detected around 7,500 so-called immunization breakthroughs, namely the disease despite vaccination. “Those who can afford to travel abroad can take a quick test,” Montgomery added.
Lauterbach: PCR Test for Restaurant Visits!
In the debate about the unequal treatment of vaccinated and unvaccinated people, SPD healthcare expert Karl Lauterbach brought up mandatory PCR testing in high cases, so as not to exclude unvaccinated people from events or restaurant visits. Lauterbach noted in the "Rheinische Post" (Saturday) that rapid antigen tests give false negative results in many positive cases.
"Unfortunately, a significant number of people are contagious, although testing has shown the opposite," said the SPD politician. Therefore, more reliable PCR tests should be required for unvaccinated people with high incidence values to attend events or go to restaurants. Lauterbach added that vaccination is the easier route because of the high cost and time required for PCR tests.
