Many MPs were tightly packed as they passed through the three doors for yes, no and abstention. Bundestag Vice-President Wolfgang Kubicki (FDP) pointed out the social distancing rules several times. “The Bundestag administration still has mouth and nose protections ready for those who want to resort to them.” But not too many MPs wanted one.
In total 314 yes votes and 237 no votes have been counted with 551 total votes. What needs to be considered is that not all of the MPs are in favor of mask mandates or social distancing laws.
