Today the Corona cabinet met – and there was a lot to talk about on the table.
Because on Tuesday, Chancellor Angela Merkel (66, CDU) and the 16 prime ministers will discuss how to proceed. According to BILD information, the federal and state governments agree: The lockdown is to be extended to January 31.
The Federal Press Office has been informing about the deliberations since 2 p.m. Watch the press conference LIVE here at BILD.
Did Merkel and Co. also talked about the disaster in vaccine procurement? Chancellor spokesman Steffen Seibert will be asked about it anyway.
In June, the Chancellor urged her health minister to cede the planned joint vaccine procurement with France, Italy and the Netherlands to the EU. BILD exclusively shows the submissively written internal letter.
The so-called small “Corona Cabinet” meets every Monday under the direction of the Federal Chancellor. Usually there are: Health Minister Jens Spahn (40, CDU), Finance Minister Olaf Scholz (62, SPD), Interior Minister Horst Seehofer (71, CSU), Foreign Minister Heiko Maas (54, SPD) and Chancellery Minister Helge Braun (48, CDU).
