Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) now has to put herself in quarantine in the corona crisis.
Government spokesman Steffen Seibert announced on Sunday evening in Berlin. After her press appearance in the evening, the chancellor was informed that she had contact with a doctor on Friday, who had meanwhile been tested positive for the corona virus.

Merkel will be tested regularly over the next few days, “because a test would not yet be fully meaningful,” continued Seibert. The Chancellor would go about her business from the quarantine.
Merkel had informed the public at a press conference in the Chancellery just before Seibert’s announcement about the measures agreed by the federal and state governments to curb virus spread.
