The Chancellor insisted that was the reason Easter Epidemic Shortcut And accepts this responsibility for making the wrong decision due to a number of ambiguous legal and institutional issues.
“This mistake is completely and exclusively my fault,” Angela Merkel said in an extraordinary statement in her office. He explained that the third wave of corona virus infection should be stopped by all means, but the issue of payment for closed days, for example, could not be adequately resolved until Easter. Changing the decision would further increase the uncertainty that I “apologize to citizens,” Angela Merkel said.
You have enough tools to defend yourself
Even without a five-day national epidemic closure, there are adequate tools for protection, especially the so-called emergency braking system, with the possibility of introducing a curfew order and the addition of new components, including the extension of the mask-wearing duty.
