According to a “Bild” report, Chancellor Angela Merkel is planning a kind of “blockade light”. Schools and daycare centers are expected to remain open except in regions with catastrophically high numbers of corona infections, the newspaper reported on Monday without citing sources. Shops are also likely to remain open with restrictions. On the other hand, Merkel wants to “be tough” in the restaurant business and at events: restaurants and bars should close and events should be banned. On Wednesday at the Prime Minister’s Conference, the Chancellor and 16 national leaders could agree on a new block model, “Bild” continued.
On Monday, in an urgent appeal, Merkel classified the situation of the infection as threatening. Now every day counts, current measures are not enough. The Chancellor moved the Corona video summit with the Prime Minister, originally scheduled for Friday, to Wednesday.
Government spokesman Steffen Seibert said the gravity of the situation is “I think everyone is aware”. Attention must be focused on what federal and state governments can do together to break the trend as quickly as possible. Seibert said he “expected resolutions”.
