The 44-year-old woman worked as a nurse in a retirement home in Hildesheim, near Hanover. She had forged her corona certificate, and had continued to work despite high-risk contact with her infected husband. It wasn’t until she showed symptoms herself at the end of November that she stayed home. In a subsequent outbreak in the rest home, fourteen residents and five other people became infected. Three people subsequently died.
According to the Hildesheimer Allgemeine Zeitung, the woman was known for her strong stance against vaccination. She had forged her corona certificate, but the rest home only found out when they took a closer look at that evidence after the woman’s infection. She was immediately fired, and a complaint was filed against the woman with the police.
“We are still keeping all options open,” said Christina Wotschke, spokesman for the prosecutor. The woman denies having anything to do with the infections. We are doing everything we can to clarify this matter. There are currently no other suspects, and as far as is known, the rest home has committed no further errors.”
