German Ministry of the Interior hired scientists to justify Corona measures

The Federal Ministry of the Interior engaged scientists from several research institutes and universities for political purposes in the first wave of the Corona pandemic in March 2020, extensive correspondence, which German weekly Welt am Sonntag had obtained, showed. It commissioned the researchers from the Robert Koch Institute and other institutions to create a calculation model on the basis of which the Ministry of the Interior, Horst Seehofer (CSU), wanted to justify tough Corona measures.

This emerges from more than 200 pages of internal correspondence between the management level of the Ministry of the Interior and the researchers, which Welt am Sonntag has in their possession. A group of lawyers fought to obtain the e-mails in a legal dispute with the Robert Koch Institute that lasted several months.

In an exchange of e-mails, the State Secretary in the Ministry of the Interior, Markus Kerber, asked the researchers who had been contacted to develop a model on the basis of which “preventive and repressive measures” could be planned.

According to the correspondence, the scientists worked in close coordination with the ministry over the space of just four days to develop content for a paper which had been declared secret, and was then distributed via various media over the following days.

A “worst-case scenario” was calculated according to which more than a million people in Germany could die of the Coronavirus if social life were to continue as it had been before the pandemic.
