The prominent virologist Christian Drosten has reported abuse at a campsite in the Mecklenburg Lake District to the police.
A spokeswoman for the Neubrandenburg police inspection confirmed that he had filed a complaint against three permanent campers – two women and one man – for defamation.
First, the online portal “We are Müritzer” reported about it. Accordingly, Drosten was insulted, among other things, as a “mass murderer”. He was also accused of “having children on his conscience”.
The police spokeswoman did not want to say anything because of ongoing investigations into the content of the insults. The incident happened last Saturday at Ellbogensee, south of the Müritz in the border region with Brandenburg.
