Söder supports Merkel's appeal

Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) receives support from Bavaria's Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) for her appeal to the population to stay at home and limit social contacts.

"The situation is serious. If we do not take countermeasures quickly, Corona will get out of control, ”said the CSU boss of“ Bild am Sonntag ”.

If you hesitate, you risk a second lockdown. “Prudence, caution and solidarity have never been as important as now.” FDP leader Christian Lindner criticized Merkel on the other hand: “If the Chancellor sees such a drama, she must immediately submit a government statement. A podcast does not replace the debate in the Bundestag when it comes to fundamental rights, ”said Lindner of“ Bild am Sonntag ”.
