Liefers describes dramatic use in intensive care units

With sometimes drastic words, actor Jan Josef Liefers reported on his use in a corona intensive care unit. “All Covid patients here in intensive care were seriously ill, closer to death than life. All young, from 28 to 48 years old. All unvaccinated “, wrote the 57 year old Tatort star in a guest post for

Accordingly, two very pregnant women were among the named patients, “whose children were fetched by emergency operation and are still alive”. The mothers, on the other hand, would not have made it, wrote Liefers.

The “Tatort” star took part in the #allesdichtmachen campaign in spring, in which dozens of film and television actors gave ironic satiricals Clips commented on the corona policy in Germany. After severe criticism, Liefers announced in a dispute with Health Minister Jens Spahn that he would register for the counter-action #allemalneschichtmachen.

The medical blogger “Doc Caro” had called on the actors to work for a shift in the ambulance service or in an intensive care unit.

According to Liefers, he was employed as an “intern” two weeks ago. “I couldn’t help much, I was only able to make myself useful when moving, wrapped in additional protective clothing, with an FFP2 mask and a kind of diving goggles on my eyes.”

Why it is so difficult for some meet, is still unclear, wrote Liefers. “However, nurses and doctors agreed that no one would have ended up here with a vaccination.”

No general vaccination call

Liefers did not want to call for vaccinations directly: “Is that a vaccination call after all? Well what can I say? I am in favor of adult vaccination, absolutely clear. But I’m not giving medical advice, I’m just telling my story. The decision is up to you. “

The guest post shows that the 57 -Year-old given an mRNA vaccine.

  • FDP and Greens put pressure on: Vaccination quota higher than expected – will the state of emergency now end?
  • If the child infects the family with Corona: “He always said: It’s my fault!”
  • “I don’t know if it was Corona” – Pandemic denier “Captain Future” fell ill after the party
  • “It doesn’t help anyone if we keep it quiet” – These people are with Corona in Berlin’s intensive care units

Liefers closes with the words: “When I think back to my day at the ITS and how the strange and sometimes merciless lottery of life ended there for the seven , then I know in any case, I have not made a mistake. “


The contribution by Jan Josef Liefers is also remarkable because it shows a development. With #allesdichtmachen, the actor was much more clearly on the side of the Corona skeptics. Even in his media appearances after the action became known, Liefers showed solidarity with the other activists. At “Maybrit Illner” he had complained that the action had hit a neuralgic point, there was also strong applause. And: There are more and more people who say that one shouldn’t say this and that any more. In any case, Jan Josef Liefers left the impression that he would repeat such an action. Also because only such an action can generate such attention.

Joachim Huber, who reviewed this “Maybrit Illner” issue, was wrong on this point. Jan Josef Liefers went his own way, he went to the clinic, to the intensive care unit. And he did not take part in the action #allesaufidentisch “by Volker Bruch and Wotan Wilke Möhring. What a difference! ( with dpa)
