Chancellor at press conference

Why does Angela Merkel never wear mouth-nose protection? A journalist has now openly confronted the Chancellor with this question.

Angela Merkel advertises again and again to the of the Robert Koch Institute * recommended guidelines to keep the spread of Corona virus * to prevent – for example, Mouth-nose protective masks to wear. But the Chancellor has never shown herself with a mask – in contrast to the Prime Ministers of the federal states or the French President Emmanuel Macron. A journalist asked the Chancellor when she was with the French President Emmanuel Macron at Meseberg Castle why.

“They always promote compliance with the distance rules and putting on protective masks. It is striking, however, that you have never been seen wearing a mask yourself, why is that? ”Asked the journalist at the press conference. Merkel’s * logical answer: “If I adhere to the distance rules *, I need them mask not to put on. And if I don’t keep to them and I go shopping, for example, then we won’t meet, obviously, “she said and laughed afterwards.” Otherwise you could have seen me with a mask. But I’m not going to tell you when I’m going to shop where. ”

For the first time since the pandemic Chancellor Angela Merkel and the French President Emmanuel Macron met personally. The appointment was about the future of the European Union after the Corona crisis * and around the Corona relief fund. The Chancellor repeated that one was living in “a serious time”. The pandemic is an economic challenge “like we have never seen it before”.

“We have arrived at a moment of truth for Europe. With the Franco-German plans for a Corona Reconstruction fund it can become a moment of success, ”added Macron. The planned one Corona Aid Fund should initially amount to EUR 500 billion in order to strengthen the economy of the EU countries and Europe’s cohesion again. The EU Commission put another 250 billion euros on top. Macron plans to have the fund approved at the next EU summit in July. However, not all EU countries agree, for example Austria and Denmark are in favor of more economical use of grants and loans.

US President Donald Trump is under pressure in his home country. A report now accuses him of “delusional” dealings with other heads of state. Angela Merkel is said to have insulted Trump massively. *merkur.de is part of the Ippen-Digital network.
