Status: March 24th, 2021 6:00 p.m.

After Chancellor Merkel’s “Easter rest” stop, Weil speaks of “fidelity”. The country is now examining tougher corona restrictions over the holidays.

“We will not just be able to let things go,” said Prime Minister Stephan Weil (SPD) on Wednesday in Hanover. The next steps are now being discussed within the state government. In addition to restricting day trips, the options could also include exit restrictions, which are named in the federal-state resolution for high-incidence regions, Weil said.

Lower Saxony goes down anyway

In a brief statement in front of the State Chancellery in Hanover, Weil admitted that the withdrawal of the resolutions agreed on Tuesday morning had caused “fidelity” to the citizens. But wrong decisions have to be taken back, that happened today, so Weil. The SPD politician said he was now counting on a voluntary “cutback in activities” during the upcoming Easter days. “We have to shut down public life as much as possible in Lower Saxony in the next two weeks.”
