Health Minister Karl Lauterbach wants to grant the planned nursing bonus only to a limited group of nursing staff.

"The care bonus should be paid primarily to care workers who were particularly exposed to the corona pandemic," said the SPD politician to the editorial network in Germany.

"Then the bonus can also be set in a significant amount." This is the only way to appreciate the special performance of nursing staff, some of whom have also "taken personal risk".

The SPD, Greens and FDP have stated in their coalition agreement that there should be a corona bonus for care workers.

The traffic light government wants to provide one billion euros for this.
