In the increasingly tense pandemic situation, the managing federal government has called for caution and consistent controls of corona access rules.
Berlin – Everyone should do all they can to ensure that winter does not bring unnecessary suffering, said government spokesman Steffen Seibert on Friday in Berlin. The development with a sharp increase in the number of cases and an escalation in the hospital burden in some regions is “very worrying”. Seibert again called for more vaccinations, booster vaccinations and test specifications in nursing homes.
It remains to be seen whether there will soon be a corona meeting between Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and the Prime Minister. The government spokesman did not announce an appointment for Merkel for the coming week. He again pointed out that the results of the health ministers’ conference on Friday should be awaited first. In view of the current transition to a new coalition, Seibert fundamentally emphasized “that we are not in a phase in which we have no government”. According to her oath of office, Merkel will “work to avert harm to the German people until the last day of her term of office.” (dpa)
