The re is a legitimate longing for an opening,” said Angela Merkel.
“Opening steps without the yo-yo effect”
The re is a legitimate yearning for an opening,” emphasized Merkel on Monday in the CDU presidium and federal board meeting. Specifically, Merkel’s plan provides for easing in several stages. Chancellery Minister Helge Braun spoke of “four opening steps without the yo-yo effect”. Details of the four-step plan have not yet been leaked.
A working group headed by Braun will work out specific steps from Tuesday, which will then be presented on March 3rd.
According to information from the AFP news agency, Merkel named three areas: On the one hand, it was about personal contacts, secondly, schools and vocational schools, and thirdly, sport, restaurants and culture.
The opening steps will probably go hand in hand with tests.
