Nord Stream 2: US senators threaten German port with 'crushing' sanctions

Three Republican senators have ordered Murkan Port on the island of Rugen to stop assisting Russian vessels constructing the final sections of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

Three US senators are threatening the operators of a small German port with "crushing legal and economic sanctions" for provisioning Russian vessels assisting with constructing the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline.

The US strongly opposes the pipeline, which is owned by Russian gas company Gazprom and will carry natural gas from Russia to Germany.

In their letter,,Republican Senators Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton and Ron Johnson accuse port operator Faehrhafen Sassnitz of "knowingly providing significant goods, services, and support" for the project.

'Completely outrageous'

On Friday, German Minister of State Niels Annen said Germany "firmly rejected" the proposed sanctions, adding the tone and content of the letter were "completely outrageous."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dear Senators; isn't Germany supposed to be one of our strongest NATO allies?!?

Or have you three decided to tick them off so permanently that they withdraw from the alliance?!? I'm just asking here, because it appears that this is precisely what you are trying to accomplish with this threat.

MAJOR: Germany Awakens As Half-A-Million March Against Covid-19 Lockdown, Masks, Distancing

A large-scale rally against restrictive measures in connection with the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has taken place in Berlin today, August 1st. The procession started on the boulevard Unter den Linden and moved along the central streets of the city at noon local time.

The marchers shouted energetic slogans “Show me your Smile!”, “We are loud because our freedom is being stolen!” “No to Dictatorship – we’ve seen this before!”, “Arrest Bill Gates!”

“Since the meeting at Unter den Linden was quite crowded, our colleagues strongly point to the need to maintain the necessary distance,” the press service of the Metropolitan Police wrote on Twitter.

According to their data, which are confirmed by the footage coming from the scene, practically none of those present were wearing masks. Some of the participants brought with them flags with the symbols of various federal states.

US Senators Reportedly Threaten German Port Operator With 'Financial Destruction' Over Nord Stream 2

The Nord Stream 2 project is set to carry up to 55 billion cubic meters (1.942 trillion cubic feet) of gas per year from Russia to Germany, passing through the territorial waters or exclusive economic zones of Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia and Sweden.

US Senator Ted Cruz together with Senators Tom Cotton and Ron Johnson have threatened the management of Mukran Port in Germany, involved in the Nord Stream 2 project with “financial destruction”, if they continue their work on the venture.

In a three-page letter, obtained by Handelsblatt newspaper, the lawmakers called on Sassnitz GmbH, which operates the port, to discontinue logistical support for the project.

"If you continue to provide goods, services, and support for the Nord Stream 2 project, you will destroy the future financial survival of your company", the letter read.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What are these guys going to do, SUPPORT AN INVASION OF GERMANY OVER THIS?!?

Folks, this... is desperation on the cusp of madness, writ large.

German court starts retrial of 3 pro-Palestine activists for criticizing Israeli crimes

A court in Germany has started the retrial of three pro-Palestine human rights activists, known as Humboldt 3, who had spoken out against Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people.

The trio – Palestinian activist Majed Abusalama and Israeli activists Ronnie Barkan and Stavit Sinai – are facing trial for their involvement in a June 2017 protest at Humboldt University, in the German capital Berlin, against Israeli Knesset Member (MK) for the Yesh Atid party, Aliza Lavie.

The three activists, known as Humboldt 3, were charged after they interrupted Lavie’s talk in 2017 about the massacre of civilians in Gaza during a speech at the Humboldt University of Berlin.

Berlin protest: Large demonstrations at Brandenburg Gate over Covid-19 restrictions

A march previously Saturday that was slammed by authorities for not sticking to guidelines on social distancing and face masks was stopped by organizers.

The march, which was called by organizers as “Day of Freedom — The End of the Pandemic,” consisted of anti-vaccine groups and some reactionary and neo-Nazi companies. On livestreams of the occasion, some protesters might be heard shouting, “We are the second wave.”

**Note** - the pejorative and low balling the numbers.

Waffling while Libya burns: Libya’s problem is a security problem that requires a military solution

"Libya’s problem is a security problem that requires a military solution. In the west of the country are the Turkish-sponsored Islamist cutthroats of the Muslim Brotherhood and their crime syndicate allies, now backed by nearly 20,000 Syrian mercenaries and other Turkish-trained jihadists. In the east is the elected parliament and its armed force, the LNA, which succeeded in cleansing that part of the country of the Islamist terrorists. It should be obvious to everyone that there cannot be a political accommodation with the Islamist terrorists — the Muslim Brotherhood and its protégés — not in Libya or any other country. To reach a political accommodation with the Muslim Brotherhood is akin to asking the US White House to share power with the drugs mafia or urge Westminster to enter talks with jihadist Anjem Choudary.

Trump says US won’t protect Germany as it ‘pays Russia billions for energy’ in 1st tweet after Pentagon announces troop withdrawal

US President Donald Trump has defended his decision to pull out almost 12,000 troops from Germany by invoking its gas imports from Russia. Washington has recently ramped up its efforts to block the deliveries.

“Germany pays Russia billions of dollars a year for Energy, and we are supposed to protect Germany from Russia. What’s that all about?” Trump tweeted, shortly after Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the US would move out some 11,900 US soldiers from Germany, as opposed to the initial plan to withdraw some 9,500 personnel.

Trump has also cited the long-running row over NATO contributions, accusing Germany of failing to fork out its fair share of the costs for the military alliance.

Germany Rejects Trump Bid To Let Russia Back Into G7: 'No Chance Due To Ukraine'

For much of the past year Trump has caused angst among allies by maintaining a consistent position that Russia should be invited back into the Group of Seven (G7), making it as it was prior to 2014, the G-8.

Russia had been essentially booted from the summit as relations with the Obama White House broke down over the Ukraine crisis and the Crimea issue. Trump said in August 2019 that Obama had been "outsmarted" by Putin.

But as recently as May when Germany followed by other countries rebuffed Trump's plans to host the G7 at Camp David, Trump blasted the “very outdated group of countries” and expressed that he planned to invite four additional non-member nations, mostly notably Russia.

Germany Disbands Elite Army Unit With ‘Toxic Leadership Culture’ Amid Far-Right Sympathy UptickUS

Germany’s defense minister revealed on Wednesday that a unit of the Kommando Spezialkraefte (KSK), the country’s elite commando force, would be disbanded. The dissolution follows a report published in January revealing that hundreds of soldiers may embody far-right extremist ideologies.

On Wednesday, Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer told the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper that the KSK, an anti-terrorism and hostage rescue unit with roughly 1,300 soldiers, had created “a wall of secrecy” around itself and that the force has a “toxic leadership culture” that “cannot continue to exist in its present form,” NPR reported.

Kramp-Karrenbauer also confirmed that some of the 70 soldiers from the disbanded force would be reassigned to other combat companies while “those who made clear they are part of the problem and not part of the solution must leave the KSK," military.com reported.

Looters chant 'Allahu Akbar' during Stuttgart's worst ever riots that turned the city into 'a battlefield' - as police reveal those involved were 'mainly young people with a migration background'

Yobs attacked police with stones and bottles after a German teenager was arrested for a drugs offence in clashes which quickly escalated into the city's worst-ever night of rioting.

Of the 24 people arrested, 12 were foreign nationals while three of the other 12 were German nationals with a migrant background, police announced at a press conference on Sunday.

Hans-Jürgen Kirstein, the head of a police union, told Bild that 'young people with a migration background were at the front of the riots'.

Berlin politicians knowingly sent children to live with PEDOPHILES for decades, new report reveals

Berlin authorities orchestrated a crackpot scheme to place foster children into the care of known pedophiles, a new report says. Dreamed up by an infamous pederasty advocate and supported by politicians, it only ended recently.

Berlin’s Green Party called on Tuesday for an investigation into a massive child abuse scandal that saw foster children placed into the care of pedophiles for more than 30 years – all the way up to 2003. According to a new report published on Monday, the city’s educational authorities and Senate knew what was taking place, and the practice was “accepted, supported, [and] defended” by left-wing politicians and academics throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s.

America: Too Weak to Rein in Its Own Empire

A grievous blow to international security has just been dealt. President Donald Trump has announced that American troops are to be withdrawn from…Germany. Yes, Germany. Why are American troops in Germany? Because we have to fight them over there so we don’t fight them here, you see, and there are few generators of terrorism and chaos in the world today quite like the Berlin club circuit.

The real surprise isn’t that we’re pulling troops out of Germany; it’s that they’re still there 75 years after World War II ended. And according to the White House, they aren’t even all being withdrawn, just a quarter of them, a reduction of 9,500 that will leave 25,000 American boots on German soil. And of the 9,500, a senior administration official tells Reuters that at least some will be redeployed elsewhere. Poland, with its closer proximity to Russia and plans to build a Fort Trump panderopolis, is a likely destination.

Not being racist isn’t enough, Germans must be ‘anti-racists,’ President Steinmeier insists

German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has instructed his countrymen to weed out all of their subconscious bigotry, real or imagined, declaring that the nation must take up arms against racism.
In televised remarks on Tuesday, Steinmeier took a somewhat inflexible stance on how to ensure equality in Germany.

“No, it’s not enough not to be a racist. We have to be anti-racists! Racism requires taking a counter-position, counter-speech, action, criticism and – perhaps most difficult – self-criticism, self-examination,” he proclaimed.

The German president went on to pontificate that “anti-racism must be learned, practiced and lived.”

German Official Leaks Report Denouncing Corona as ‘A Global False Alarm’

Some of the report key passages are:

  • The dangerousness of Covid-19 was overestimated: probably at no point did the danger posed by the new virus go beyond the normal level.
  • The people who die from Corona are essentially those who would statistically die this year, because they have reached the end of their lives and their weakened bodies can no longer cope with any random everyday stress (including the approximately 150 viruses currently in circulation).
  • Worldwide, within a quarter of a year, there has been no more than 250,000 deaths from Covid-19, compared to 1.5 million deaths [25,100 in Germany] during the influenza wave 2017/18.
  • The danger is obviously no greater than that of many other viruses. There is no evidence that this was more than a false alarm.
  • A reproach could go along these lines: During the Corona crisis the State has proved itself as one of the biggest producers of Fake News.

    German Official Leaks Report Denouncing COVID-19 As "A Global False Alarm"

    Authored by Daniele Pozzati via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

    Germany’s federal government and mainstream media are engaged in damage control after a report that challenges the established Corona narrative leaked from the interior ministry.

    Some of the report key passages are:

    The dangerousness of Covid-19 was overestimated: probably at no point did the danger posed by the new virus go beyond the normal level.

    The people who die from Corona are essentially those who would statistically die this year, because they have reached the end of their lives and their weakened bodies can no longer cope with any random everyday stress (including the approximately 150 viruses currently in circulation).

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    So ultimately, the whole lockdown, shelter in place, social distancing was simply a ruse upon which the West could use to blame its economic collapse, rather than the corrupted market fundamentals?!?

    Sickening, folks; just sickening.

    I have a family member, all alone in an assisted living facility, whose adult kids have not been able to see her in months; I am hoping, and praying, that the California lockdown will be over very soon, particularly for her sake, and the sake of her brother and sister residents, all in the same boat.

    Merkel rebuffs Trump invitation to G-7 summit

    The president wants a landmark event, but the German chancellor ‘cannot agree’ to travel due to ongoing pandemic.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has rebuffed Donald Trump’s invitation to attend a G-7 summit, which the president is keen to portray as a symbol of a return to normality from the upheaval of the coronavirus crisis.

    "The federal chancellor thanks President Trump for his invitation to the G-7 summit at the end of June in Washington. As of today, considering the overall pandemic situation, she cannot agree to her personal participation, to a journey to Washington," German government spokesman Steffen Seibert told POLITICO on Friday.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    This is Merkel's way... of telling President Trump to do something "anatomically impossible", because of her wanting to distance herself as far as possible from a President who has become "Kryptonite" to the EU-ers still remaining in Europe, and Germany specifically.

    Billionaire philanthropist and infamous Color Revolution financier George Soros recently elaborated on his views of International Relations in the midst of World War C during an interview with the UK's "Independent", unexpectedly concluding that Germany's recent court ruling against the European Central Bank's purchase of national bonds poses an "existential threat" to the bloc and therefore also to his "precious" vision of an "open society", even more so than the alleged ones posed by COVID, Trump, or China that he previously fearmongered about.

    Germany: Left-wing extremists assault television crew, some hospitalised

    Left-wing extremists assaulted a television crew in Berlin on May Day, resulting in a number of injuries, some severe enough to require hospitalisation.

    The attack took place in the Kreuzberg district on Friday evening. A team of seven, including three security guards, from the satirical news programme Heute-Show (Today Show), which airs on Germany’s channel ZDF, had been filming as hundreds of demonstrators marched in the area. The march was held in violation of the ongoing lockdown in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The demonstrators shouted chants against the police and threw smoke bombs as officers attempted to disperse the crowd, according to a report by Die Welt.

    German Interior Minister Seehofer mulls FIFTH term for Chancellor Merkel as Covid-19 crisis boosts her popularity

    The Covid-19 crisis has surprisingly turned out to be a boon for German Chancellor Angela Merkel as she regained public support. Now, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer believes a fifth term in office might not be ruled out.

    Successful handling of the novel coronavirus pandemic which has allowed Germany to start the process of gradually easing quarantine rules which have been crippling its economy for quite some time has apparently boosted Merkel’s image among her fellow party members and political allies.

    Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, who has had quite a thorny relationship with the chancellor over the last couple of years, has now floated the idea of her staying at the helm for another term. The man, who once said he “cannot work with this woman” anymore and refused to shake hands with her amid the coronavirus scare just a couple of months ago, has now given generous praise to her “strong” leadership during the epidemic.

    ‘Immunity’ with benefits? Germans worried as govt mulls IDs ‘making life easier’ for Covid-19 survivors

    Berlin is reportedly considering issuing IDs confirming the bearer is immune to Covid-19 and may have more freedom than the as-yet uninfected. It adds to debate on whether recovery from the virus protects humans from reinfection.
    Germany's federal government has passed a bill that would allow for handing out “coronavirus immunity cards” to anyone who has recovered from – and thus developed enough antibodies against – the disease, according to Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper, citing a copy of the document.

    Berlin Police Arrest Over 100 Protesters for Violating COVID-19 Restrictions

    More than 100 demonstrators have been arrested in the German capital for violating the coronavirus restrictions, city police said.

    "Our assignment at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz has ended. By blocking the surrounding streets, we were able to prevent a larger build-up on the square. However, many people violated the Covid-19 distance requirement. There were more than 100 arrests," Berlin police said on Saturday.

    Earlier in the day, several hundred people gathered in Germany’s capital to protest against coronavirus restrictions. The demonstration lasted for a little over an hour.

    "I Want My Life Back" - German Anti-Lockdown Protests Worsen

    More than a thousand anti-quarantine protesters turned out for a rally in the German capital, Berlin, on Saturday, resulting in dozens of arrests. This is a continuation from last weekend as social decay worsens.

    Saturday's protest saw mainly leftist activist but also a mix of right-wing folks. Police were armed with riot gear and weapons, posted up around Rosa Luxemburg square.

    Protesters handed out flyers entitled "Democratic Resistance," which stated the COVID-19 pandemic is ushering in the surveillance state as the government seizes power by spreading fear.

    Police spokesman Thilo Cablitz said the city approved an event where people were to hand out flyers and follow social distancing rules -- but it eventually transformed into a protest that got out of hand.

    "During coronavirus times and according to containment regulations, we are obliged to prevent a gathering," Cablitz said.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Governments around the world are discovering that there is a finite upper limit to which people can be pushed; many on this planet are already there.

    Luckily, in this little household of two, there is no panic or mass frustration, just practicality. We are still practicing social distancing, when going out, but we are both feeling fine.

    In the state of Indiana, no church services will be happening until at least the 17th of next month, but I, as are many of my brother and sister Christians, can participate in live-streaming church services, and virtual Bible classes, which is a good thing.

    VIRGIN ATLANTIC founder Sir Richard Branson has called for a £500million Government bailout to save the company - but the billionaire claimed in 2009 that a rival airline should not receive similar treatment.

    ...

    [W]hen Virgin Atlantic's rival airline – British Airways – encountered similar turmoil in 2009, Sir Richard said the Government should avoid bailing them out.

    At the time, he said the airline was "not worth much anymore" and warned ministers against bailing it out if its finances deteriorated.

    He added that ministers "would be better to wait for its demise".

    German state minister kills himself as coronavirus hits economy

    Thomas Schaefer, the finance minister of Germany's Hesse state, has committed suicide apparently after becoming "deeply worried" over how to cope with the economic fallout from the coronavirus, state premier Volker Bouffier said on Sunday.

    Schaefer, 54, was found dead near a railway track on Saturday. The Wiesbaden prosecution's office said they believe he died by suicide.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    The last note in his wikipedia bio ends with the following statement:

    He was survived by his wife and two children."

    "Suicide" is a polite way to characterize a process of political extermination against people who know, or say, too much, as "l'encouragement pour les autres" (Encouragement for the others) not to do this.

    IF a true, forensic autopsy were to be performed, I doubt like hell that "suicide" will be named as the actual cause of his death; and were I a betting person, I would almost be willing to bet that his widow is getting one, huge pile-up of pressure, not to allow this to happen.

    Bavaria on lockdown: First German state to 'shut down public life almost completely' for 2 weeks in bid to stop Covid-19

    Bavaria will introduce tight restrictions on movement for two weeks in the hope of containing the Covid-19 pandemic that has seized Europe, making it the first German state to introduce a lockdown.

    The strict measures include the closure of restaurants and bars, and bans large gatherings. People are urged to not leave their homes unless they are going to work, visiting the doctor, or buying groceries and medicine. Limited outdoor activity is still allowed but only alone or with a family member.

    Minister Markus Soeder said on Friday that the lockdown, which begins at midnight, was not an "easy" decision to make.

    Germany to block foreign takeovers, protect domestic companies – top politicians

    Germany will protect domestic firms from foreign takeovers, two leading politicians said on Friday, after company valuations in Europe’s largest economy have been hammered by the coronavirus pandemic. Ministers have already promised liquidity support to businesses, and introduced measures making it easier to reduce working hours rather than lay off workers.

    Germany’s blue-chip DAX index, which comprises the country’s 30 largest listed corporations, has plunged by more than a third over the past month. This has increased the risk of foreign companies snapping up rivals at a discount.

    “We will avoid a sell-out of German economic and industrial concerns. There cannot be any taboos. Temporary and limited state support as well as participation and takeovers need to be possible,” Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said.

    Merkel calls coronavirus 'biggest challenge since WWII'

    Germany is facing its biggest challenge "since the Second World War" in the fight against the coronavirus, Chancellor Angela Merkel said Wednesday, in what observers called a "final warning" for citizens to heed sweeping confinement measures.

    In a dramatic television appeal, Merkel said everyone played a part in slowing down a pandemic that has raced across the globe and triggered unprecedented peace-time lockdowns.

    "The situation is serious. Take it seriously. Not since German reunification, no, not since the Second World War has our country faced a challenge that depends so much on our collective solidarity," she said.

    Why Is Italy a Target?

    In "The Conspirators' Hierarchy: the Committee of 300", (1992) John Coleman said the first two targets of the Illuminati are US and Italy: the first because US is the most powerful and richest nation in the World; the second for its long Catholic tradition and its central place in western civilization.

    Until the 80's, Italy was the fourth economy in the World. Only US, Japan and Germany were more powerful. Then, Italy had 9 hospital beds per 100.000 people. The North of the country had really the best health care system in the World when I was a child. If this coronavirus epidemic had happened in the 80's, Italy could have the possibility to manage the situation without draconian measures. But now, after the budget limitations imposed by European Union, even if Italy is a net contributor for it (we give Europe Union more money than we receive), we were forced to cut the budget for our national health care system which now is close to collapse.

    Liberal ideology & virtue signaling put before people’s HEALTH, as Macron, Merkel defend open borders amid Covid-19 spread

    Dealing with Covid-19, Emmanuel Macron seems to be singing from the same hymn sheet as Angela Merkel, who is also against closing borders, but is this not a case of Western liberal ideology overriding necessity and common sense?

    Compare and contrast. In his speech to the nation last night, Macron declared: “This virus has no passport.” He added: “We will undoubtedly take measures to close borders, but only when it is relevant… It is at the European level that we have built our freedoms.”

    Serving as Merkel’s first public address on the outbreak, she warned that border closures would not be enough to prevent the spread of the virus, according to a report from Hungarian newspaper Mandiner.

    “This is a test for our solidarity, our common sense and care for each other. And I hope we pass the test,” she said. However, she ruled out following Austria’s lead in banning visitors from Italy.

    "Bracing For Impact" – China Shock To Strike Germany's Largest Port In Days, As Trade Volumes Collapse 40%

    The worst-case coronavirus scenario is now being realized for German ports, as collapsing trade volumes from China could push Europe’s largest economy into recession.

    For the last three weeks, global markets have been obsessed with economic paralysis that is quickly spreading across Asia, Europe, and the Americas. An economic shock combined with a virus outbreak is what triggered a macro matters moment for investors, who sold first and are asking questions later, as it appears a global trade recession could be on the horizon.

    German Public: Washington’s New Moves In Europe Unnecessary

    The new American-led “Defender of Europe” exercise, which is months long and lasts from February until July, involves over 20,000 American troops – more than those of all its NATO allies put together, and more than at any time in the past quarter-century.

    Although United States officials do not say it is designed to counter the mythical Russian threat, the demonstration of US force capability comes after years of piecemeal reinforcements of NATO’s eastern flank following Russia’s reunification with Crimea in March 2014.

    It is no coincidence that Germany was chosen as the main site for the exercises. It’s no less remarkable that 20,000 troops, passing through Germany, will be relocated to Poland. It’s well known that Poland is an outpost of the anti-Russian policy of the West and a conductor of US ideas. These teachings are also one of the ways of imposing moral, if not military, pressure, and not so much on Russia as on Europe.

    While confidence in the government’s preparedness is higher among men than women, only 23 per cent of men trust in the ability of the government.

    “This rush is not an accident, it’s organized,” Kurz told journalists in Vienna. “Those people are used by Erdogan as a playball, as a weapon, to apply pressure on the European Union.”

    The European Union must stand united behind Greece, and protect the borders as well as provide humanitarian help, Kurz said.

    Germany’s health minister said Wednesday that the country was “at the beginning of an epidemic” as authorities in the west tested dozens of people who had contact with a couple infected with the coronavirus gaining a foothold in Europe.

    Germany has been bracing for an increase in confirmed cases since the number of infected people spiked Friday in nearby Italy. The testing in western Germany came after a 47-year-old man with the virus was hospitalized in serious condition in Duesseldorf.

    The man’s wife, who works in a kindergarten, was also confirmed to have contracted the virus. A soldier in the German air force who had contact with the hospitalized man also has tested positive, Col. Rainer Volb, acting head of the German military hospital in Koblenz.

    Germany facing coronavirus ‘epidemic,’ govt can no longer track infection chains – health minister

    German Health Minister Jens Spahn has said that his country is facing a “coronavirus epidemic.” Since breaking out in northern Italy, the deadly COVID-19 virus has spread to more than a dozen European countries.

    “We are at the beginning of a coronavirus epidemic in Germany,” the minister told reporters in Berlin on Wednesday. Spahn added that infection chains can no longer be tracked in Germany, and called on hospitals and employers to review their pandemic planning.

    A new instance of the deadly infection confirmed in the state of Nordrhein-Westfalen on Tuesday brought to 18 the number of cases recorded in Germany.

    German Health Minister Jens Spahn has said that his country is facing a “coronavirus epidemic.” Since breaking out in northern Italy, the deadly COVID-19 virus has spread to more than a dozen European countries.
    “We are at the beginning of a coronavirus epidemic in Germany,” the minister told reporters in Berlin on Wednesday. Spahn added that infection chains can no longer be tracked in Germany, and called on hospitals and employers to review their pandemic planning.

    A new instance of the deadly infection confirmed in the state of Nordrhein-Westfalen on Tuesday brought to 18 the number of cases recorded in Germany.

    Spahn claimed earlier that “detection and containment” efforts in Europe were working to hold back the spread of the virus, but an explosion of cases in northern Italy and at least 13 other European countries have forced him to reevaluate the situation. At his last press conference on Tuesday, Spahn admitted “it could get worse before it gets better.”

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    The bottom line here, is that German health officials have already lost this battle, period, end of discussion.

    So German people; you're on your own, in terms of taking care of yourselves, and limiting yourselves to any potential exposure to the coronavirus.
