Winfried Stöcker, owner of Lübeck Airport
Winfried Stöcker is a doctor, entrepreneur and very controversial, also because of his political positions. Now the founder of the Corona test provider Euroimmun has dared to do a self-test.
Dhe wearing protective masks is becoming fashionable and may soon be compulsory in Germany. Winfried Stöcker propagated this two weeks ago. In the blog on his homepage, he published a striking photo of himself with a beige, tight-fitting something around his mouth and nose. “An alternative barrier for active or passive protection against droplet infection can be created from an elastic bandage if the protective masks are sold out,” he wrote below.
Today there are protective masks that harmonize in color and design with jackets or blouses. Stöcker’s own creation is the opposite of fashionable. It comes practically and at the same time looks unruly. In a way, it reflects the personality of the wearer. The 73-year-old is a doctor and self-made entrepreneur who has built up a large medical technology company with over 3,000 employees from small beginnings over more than three decades, with extensive expertise in the Corona area. Euroimmun recently launched one of the first tests for antibodies to the Sars CoV-2 virus.
