In the event of an extension of the shutdown in December, the federal government is planning financial aid for affected companies to the tune of an estimated 17 billion euros.

This is reported by the dpa news agency.

An extension of the shutdown in Germany until shortly before Christmas is now considered to be almost certain.

The prime ministers of the federal states agreed on Monday evening that the measures, which were limited to the end of November, would continue until December 20.

A final decision is to be made during consultations with Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) on Wednesday.

In the event of an extension, catering establishments as well as leisure and cultural facilities would remain closed.

This should ensure that the number of corona cases is significantly reduced.

The federal government supports the affected companies to the best of its ability.

So far, the government is planning around EUR 14 to 15 billion in aid for November to largely compensate for lost sales.

The first funds should flow to companies and self-employed people by the end of the month.

The money is to come from a pot for ongoing bridging aid that is far from being exhausted.

It is still unclear what exactly the new aid for December will look like.

The EU Commission would have to approve it again.
