The Corona crisis management team in the Federal Chancellery, which was only set up in November, will be dissolved again. With a view to the Corona situation, Germany is “in a completely different situation in terms of infections and vaccinations than last autumn,” said Deputy Government Spokeswoman Christiane Hoffmann on Wednesday in Berlin. The tasks of fighting the pandemic should be managed “in the future in the usual working structures of the federal government”.
The dissolution of the crisis team “should not be misunderstood,” said Hoffmann: “Of course it is very clear that the pandemic is not over, but continues.” The council of experts convened by the federal government continues to exist and meets regularly, said the deputy government spokeswoman. He is currently preparing recommendations for preparing for the situation in autumn and winter.
