At European level, supermarkets can now choose to serve only customers who have been vaccinated or who have been cured of covid. The entry rules for health permits, announced by the German authorities for example, allow all stores to introduce the so-called 2G rule. In other words, ocals can choose to refuse entry to those who are not vaccinated or who have been cured of the virus. Such decisions were made inside Kaufland stores in Germany, but also in Romania, where they were taken to the extreme.
Kaufland is taking drastic measures to limit unvaccinated people
If in Germany this type of rules were imposed, in Romania, for example, the retailer Kaufland took the concept of restrictions in its stores to another level. Several films have recently appeared in the public space inside the Kaufand stores, where they were installed fences at least 2 meters high. According to officials, the fences are meant to keep Kaufland customers away who decided not to get vaccinated.
Such a case appeared on social networks, the images showing the situation inside a Kaufland store in Râmnicu Sărat. After the appearance of these images, other similar situations appeared in other cities in the country, and the main character there were also Kaufland stores.
The fences installed inside the Kaufand store in Râmnicu Sărat separate the area of restaurants, confectioneries, pharmacies, in general the shops considered non-essential, from the actual access area of the product shelves. Both on the official website of the retailer and on the official Facebook page, there is currently no reaction to these situations presented by several customers.
The 2G rule has been imposed in Germany
Frankfurt supermarkets, such as Kaufland, can now choose to serve only customers who have been vaccinated or cured of covid. The entry rules for health permits, announced by the central state of Hesse, allow all stores to introduce the so-called 2G rule. Accordingly, locals may choose to refuse entry to those who are not vaccinated (“vaccinated”In German) or who have healed (“recovered„) Virus.
The introduction of the 2G rule, which has been allowed in about half of the German states for the services sector, allows stores to abandon the rules on wearing a mask along with those that require social distance, reports the DailyMail publication.
Germany appears to be in the midst of a third wave of cases, although the death toll has fallen in recent months, following a second peak in January this year. Germany recorded 4.3 million confirmed cases and 94,526 deaths during the pandemic, according to World Health Organization figures.
