Joshua Kimmich did not want to be vaccinated against Corona at first – and has now tested positive. This is what health expert Karl Lauterbach says about the developments.

Berlin – The health expert Karl Lauterbach wished national soccer player Joshua Kimmich a “quick full recovery” after his corona infection. “The case shows how difficult it is to avoid Covid today without being vaccinated.”

Kimmich has tested positive for the corona virus, FC Bayern Munich confirmed on Wednesday. The previously unvaccinated 26-year-old was most recently in quarantine after having had contact with a person who tested positive.

For weeks, Kimmich has been the focus of public debates across Germany after the Bayern professional admitted at the end of October that he was not vaccinated against the corona virus. Kimmich had justified his hesitation that he had “a few personal concerns, especially when it comes to the lack of long-term studies”.
