BERLIN - There has been a lot of uproar in Germany over the German government's pressure on scientists to justify the harsh lockdown and heighten fears. The opposition in the Bundestag is demanding clarification
The Vice-President of the Bundestag, Wolfgang Kubicki, went one step further. He compared the behaviour of the government of the long-term CDU president Merkel to that of authoritarian states. "If you scare the population into pushing through political measures, put the axe to our democracy. It is clearly no longer about explaining empowered citizens political decisions based on facts," kubicki said.

During the drafting, the Secretary of State of the Ministry was in close contact with the scientists, including RKI chief Lothar Wieler. In previously secret emails, the secretary of state referred to him as "my friend." After four days, the paper was ready: the scientists warned of one million corona deaths and gave tips on how to achieve the "desired shock effect": "Many seriously ill people are taken to the hospital by their relatives, but turned away, and die agonizingly struggling for air at home."

Totally shocking and outrageous how politicians have and are behaving. I would not be surprised to see more of these revelations come to light in the coming months.
