Olaf Scholz: »New, precise handling of the current challenges«



In view of the escalating corona situation, the traffic light coalition wants to entrust a logistics expert from the Bundeswehr with the management of the announced crisis team.

The decision is apparently to be announced in the coming days and thus before the new federal government takes office.

According to SPIEGEL information, Major General Carsten Breuer will take over the task.

The 56-year-old is the commander of the Bundeswehr Territorial Tasks Command, which is responsible for domestic operations by the armed forces.

The Süddeutsche Zeitung reported on it first.

In the coalition agreement, the SPD, the Greens and the FDP agreed that the future federal government would "immediately" set up a new crisis team "to better coordinate the nationwide fight against the corona pandemic."

Chancellor-designate Olaf Scholz (SPD) announced on Saturday a "new, precise way of dealing with the current challenges" via Twitter and referred to the crisis team to be founded.

“We'll do whatever it takes.

There is nothing that cannot be taken into account, ”said Scholz.

He made a similar statement on the sidelines of the Juso Federal Congress in Frankfurt am Main.
