Chancellor Angela Merkel thanked her compatriots on Sunday for the common sense that was shown during the crisis when she accepted the restrictions imposed by the corona virus.
“So far we have passed this test quite well. All of us together, an overwhelming majority of the people in our country, have been guided by caution, reason and responsibility towards others,” said the President in her weekly message. .
“We saved ourselves a lot of suffering. Our joint effort is exactly what fortunately did not happen in our country,” he added. To date, the pandemic in Germany has claimed 8,489 fatalities, while the total number of positive events is 181,196.
However, Merkel has warned that risks should not be underestimated. “Some people now believe that the risk has probably never been greater because we have not suffered massively … what a mistake!”
