Chancellor Angela Merkel herself has to go into quarantine at home. This was announced by her spokesman Steffen Seibert on Sunday evening.
“After her press appearance today, the Chancellor was informed that a doctor who had given her prophylactic pneumococcal vaccination on Friday afternoon has now tested positive for the coronavirus,” said Seibert. The Chancellor then decided to immediately quarantine her home. “It will be tested regularly over the next few days because a test would not be fully meaningful yet.” The Chancellor will also do her business from home quarantine.
