An EM in twelve countries, a pandemic in retreat - and a head of the Chancellery who warns against traveling to.
“You shouldn't travel to virus variant areas,” says Braun.
Berlin (dpa) - Chancellery chief Helge Braun advises German football fans against a trip to the crucial European Championship games.
“My major concern is the spreading Delta variant in the UK - and London is a venue.
One should not travel to virus variant areas, ”said the CDU politician in an interview with the“ RedaktionsNetzwerk Deutschland ”(RND).
The two semi-finals and the final of the European Football Championship will take place in the English capital.
The federal government classified the UK as a virus variant area in May.
Braun emphasized in this context: "Anyone who goes to London has to be in quarantine for two weeks if they want to come to Germany."
At the same time, he criticized the fact that the German opponents in the preliminary round, Hungary, had played their first European Championship group game against Portugal in Budapest in front of a sold-out crowd.
“At the match between Germany and France in Munich, we saw that distance rules can be adhered to.
I find a fully occupied stadium next to it, ”said Braun.
