  1. English speaking accountants in Berlin

    I doubt very few serious business owners are doing their accounts themselves. Employed people, folks running hobby businesses, part-time freelancers - fair enough.

      I think it has very little to do with can't be arsed.   I would highlight these points: 1. Accountant costs are a deductible business expense 2. Your time/hourly rate can be more valuable/higher than what you would pay your accountant to do it 3. Your accountant should know how to optimise (ie reduce) the taxes you pay with regards to your income, expenses & investments 4. Your accountant should have a good working relationship with your Finanzamt which helps when the inevitable Prüfung is due   I've been with my accountant here for nearly 30 years and at no point have I ever thought it was worth doing it myself. Obviously, someone who is employed in a company,  with no or very low business expenses shouldn't bother.

      You are much more likely to have caught it in the restaurant, sat inside amongst people who hadn't been tested.

      Well, heaven forbid public safety gets in the way of the profit train.   I don't understand any of your last line of gibberish.

      In an ideal world I would agree with you, as we would have a vaccine that stops infection and transmission a lot more effectively than the ones we have now do. As it is, relying on a person's vaccination status to stop infection and transmission rather than a negative test (2G) is absolute madness. 2G+ at least has some merit.

    2/3rds of positive cases.   Sorry, that's not quite right - it's actually 71.5% of positive cases were vaccinated (1,827,454 out of 2,556,580). 549,062 unvaccinated (21.5%). 180,064 unknown status (7%).

      I didn't give an interpretation you numpty, except to say it was interesting.   The only conclusion I can draw from it at all is that reports of "pandemic of the unvaccinated" and "90% of patients in hospital are unvaccinated" are clearly not true.   Or do you draw a different conclusion from it?

      U ok hun?

      Surely everyone having to present a negative PCR test is the only thing that matters? I'm pretty certain not all of the staff would have been vaccinated either.

    Interesting figures from the UK:     Case rates in the vaccinated (per 100k) on average roughly double of that in the unvaccinated. I suspect we would see the same thing here if the vaccinated were being tested as frequently as the unvaccinated. Hospitalisation and death rates (per 100k) as expected are both on average roughly 5x higher in the unvaccinated, however not the 20x or 60x being bandied about. Worryingly, the under 18s have a higher death rate (per 100k) amongst the vaccinated.     Actual numbers of the hospitalisations look a little different: Here, roughly 40% of the admissions are unvaccinated.     Deaths: Roughly 25% of all deaths are unvaccinated. The rest are either partially or fully vaccinated.   All of the hospitalisation and death numbers obviously include people being hospitalised or dying from other causes but after a positive test.   Link to the file

      I don't see the similarity - do you stay in hospital for multiple nights when you see your urologist? Is the treatment for Covid different if you are vaccinated or unvaccinated? Or is this just a stats thing?  
  12. 3G in Restaurants?

      This isn't necessarily true. I was admitted to hospital in November for a scheduled operation and no-one asked my vaccination status. I had to provide a negative PCR test but nothing else. This was in Munich.

      Go on then, who do you think I am?
