Amid growing concerns about the coronavirus across the Old Continent, the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel has said that the country’s management of the pandemic has “gotten out of control”the Bild newspaper reported Tuesday.
“The potential threat from different virus variants, which spread more rapidly, means that Germany is ‘sitting on a powder keg’, warning that the virus situation could easily get worse in the coming weeks. “
“Store reopening in mid-February ‘is not assured’, and calls for additional measures to be taken, including reduction of travel as much as possible“.
On the other hand, the German Health Minister, Jens Spahn, has said that it makes sense to have restrictions on the export of COVID-19 vaccines leaving the European Union.
