U-turn in the case of Joshua Kimmich. Because he had to be in quarantine as an unvaccinated contact person, the Bayern star no longer received his salary. The situation has changed due to his corona infection.
The back and forth about Bayern’s midfield engine Joshua Kimmich continues. It has been known since Wednesday that the 26-year-old was infected with the corona virus. At the time, Kimmich had already been in quarantine for a week. The reason: The unvaccinated national player had contact with a corona-positive person in the family environment.
Because Kimmich is not vaccinated, Bayern were able to cut his salary for the period of his quarantine. The same applied to the stars Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Jamal Musiala, Serge Gnabry and Michael Cuisance. Gnabry and Musiala have, according to “Kicker” meanwhile get vaccinated with the first dose. Choupo-Moting is, like Kimmich, tested positive for Corona turn into.
But now the situation at Joshua Kimmich has changed. The employer may waive the continued payment of wages for unvaccinated persons who are in quarantine, but not if the employee is infected himself.
That is why Kimmich has been receiving his salary again since last Wednesday, when the PCR test was positive. This is the second time in a row that the Bayern star has luck in misfortune.
First: His infection took the air out of the discussion about the vaccination of the midfielder. Kimmich is now considered recovered and can therefore also play under 2G conditions. Second: Unlike before, the 26-year-old is getting his salary again.
