After tested positive, Angela Merkel is on a vaccination treatment. This means the chief crisis manager and head of government had to go into quarantine at home herself.
Helge Braun, her Chancellery Minister said in a television talk show on Sunday night, there was hope Merkel was not infected. But of course neither Braun nor Merkel herself can tell. She is now governing the country and managing the crisis from home.
After an online gathering she had with the First Ministers of Germany’s federal states, Merkel had announced new rules designed to slow down the spread of the Coronavirus. Once the legal basis is there later today, they will come into effect.
