Before the federal party conference, which is so important for her, the candidate for the Greens presidency, Ricarda Lang, was infected with the corona virus.

Berlin – Before the federal party conference, which is so important for her, the candidate for the Greens presidency, Ricarda Lang, was infected with the corona virus. That was the result of a PCR test on Wednesday evening, Lang wrote on Twitter on Thursday. “Fortunately, I’ve been vaccinated three times, I’m fine and I don’t feel any symptoms.” She will hold her application speech for the election as the new leader of the Greens at the party conference on Saturday digitally.

“After my first speech in the Bundestag, I drove home yesterday for a video conference and in the evening I received the result of the PCR test by e-mail, which we carried out as standard before the party conference at the weekend,” wrote Lang. In the Bundestag, Lang gave a speech during the orientation debate on compulsory corona vaccination. She has now isolated herself at home and notified her risk contacts, she said.

“We know that the vaccination protects very reliably against severe courses and death, but there is still a risk of infection, especially with omicron,” wrote Lang. “That’s why I can only appeal to everyone to please get vaccinated and take care of themselves and their fellow human beings.”

The Greens are holding a digital party conference on Friday and Saturday. Only a small group of people are present in the Berlin Velodrom. The several hundred delegates connect via the Internet. On the second day of the event, new leadership elections will be held. The 28-year-old social politician Lang belongs to the left wing and is running together with the 46-year-old foreign politician Omid Nouripour from the Realo wing as the new leadership duo. (dpa)
