Chancellor Merkel offers to speak to the countries again about the corona situation.

She is concerned about the rising numbers.

Berlin - The number of new Corona * infections is steeply up again.

A circumstance that worries Chancellor Angela Merkel * (CDU).

She urges further necessary protection requirements.

For the Chancellor, the question arises as to which warning value should be advised about additional measures for hospital occupancy, said government spokesman Steffen Seibert on Wednesday (October 27) in Berlin.

In such a case, if the situation deteriorated further, the federal government, which is now still in charge, would also be ready to talk to the federal states about it at any time.

The Corona summit with the Chancellor shaped Merkel's last years in office *.

Merkel worried about the corona situation in Germany - traffic light parties present plans

From Merkel's point of view, it is right and necessary that, according to the plans of the possible future government partners (SPD, FDP and Greens), many protective measures should be retained as an option, said Seibert.

The three parliamentary groups want the “epidemic situation of national scope” established by the Bundestag as the previous basis for corona requirements to expire on November 25th.

However, a new legal basis is to be created for a transitional period until March 20, 2022.

Representatives also presented these plans to the public on Wednesday.

This means that the federal states should continue to be able to order "less intervention-intensive" measures - among other things, on masks or access rules only for vaccinated, convalescent and tested people.

Saxony's Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer (CDU *) does not see the situation of national importance yet.

"On the contrary, it is just gaining strength and danger again," said the head of government of the German Press Agency, contradicting Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU).

He had previously spoken out in favor of the nationwide corona emergency not being extended again after November 25.

Seibert made it clear that, from Merkel's point of view, the previous connection between the identified special situation and the measures in the pandemic is proven and useful.

The new Bundestag and Bundesrat would now have to decide on new regulations.
