Angela Merkel: The epidemic situation in Germany is dramatic

Chancellor Angela Merkel stated that many citizens did not seem to understand the seriousness of the situation and that even as more people get vaccinated, that alone is not enough. Merkel called on 16 German Länder, which are largely setting their own pandemic containment policies, to tighten restrictions this week.

– We currently have a highly dramatic situation. This is the worst we have experienced so far, Angela Merkel told representatives of the CDU party.

After Bavaria, Saxony is another federal state that has decided to introduce new, more stringent measures to combat COVID-19, including on the closure of recreational and cultural facilities. Many places will be inaccessible to the unvaccinated, and there will be a curfew in the counties with the highest infection rates.

The new regulations enter into force on Monday and will be valid until December 12. – Freedom without responsibility is called selfishness, (…) it is about solidarity. New measures are absolutely necessary, stated the Prime Minister of Saxony, Michael Kretschmer.

A curfew will be introduced in poviats with the highest number of coronavirus infections (over 1,000 per 100,000 inhabitants). There are currently four such poviats: Meissen, Bautzen, Leipzig and Saxon Switzerland.
