GERMANY

Finance Minister Olaf Scholz has stated that Chancellor Angela Merkel will hold a meeting with state minister-presidents next week in order to discuss the spike in COVID-19 cases in Germany. Comes as Scholz tells the Bundestag that efforts must be made to vaccinate every eligible person, an effort that he says would be aided by reopening vaccination centres. Scholz also emphasised the importance of booster shots for the elderly and vulnerable in containing the virus.

  • Scholz's comments on the pandemic will be viewed with great interest, given the strong likelihood that he becomes Germany's next chancellor once his Social Democrats, the Greens, and the Free Democrats reach a coalition agreement.
  • Shold Scholz indicate that a spike in cases/hospitalisations may lead to the re-imposition of lockdown restrictions it could set off a wave of heightened restrictions across the EU during the winter.
