Angela Merkel, the latest press conference: the German spoke in her last press conference as Prime Chancellor, answering several questions on the hottest topics, such as climate and pandemic
Angela Merkel, following this year’s announcement to abandon politics, he spoke in what presumably will be his last attendance at the traditional summer press conference of Federal press conference, the Association of Journalists of the German capital. There Merkel, relaxed and smiling, she answered questions on various topics, such as environment and climate change, foreign policy and feminism, but above all on the pandemic situation.
“The pandemic“, Commented the Prime Chancellor,” at this moment it is mainly driven by Delta variant. The rules of distance, hygiene and attention must continue and remain of great importance, especially indoors, but also, in general, in schools, kindergartens and wherever there is still a low vaccination offer ”. According to Merkel, however, “the rules and buffers are useful, but the key to overcoming the fourth wave of the pandemic is that of vaccines“. “A high quota of vaccination serves to overcome a fourth wave of infections by avoiding overloading the German health system”Insisted the chancellor. “Because our primary objective is precisely that of prevent overload of the health system, an objective that serves the economy, culture, school and society as a whole “.
It was a real “appeal” what Angela Merkel he addressed to the Germans: “Every single one vaccination it is a step towards the return to normality ”, he continues. “Vaccination is not a privilege for those who have greater access to information or to doctors, but it is everyone’s right”. And it is for this reason that the chancellor returns to “campaign” for the vaccine protection: “Some may think it is a threat, others are insecure. To all of you I want to say: the vaccine not only protects you, but also those around you, those you love. It not only protects your health but also prevents restrictive measures. With vaccines we will all be freer, not just as individuals, but as a community. Talk about it everywhere, talk about it with others, because we need each other and only together will we overcome the pandemic ”.
