German Chancellor Angela Merkel has assured the economy of continued support amid the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. “We will not leave companies and businesses that are experiencing problems through no fault of their own due to the current crisis. We want to help quickly and without bureaucracy,” she said in a weekly video message to citizens, released Saturday, October 31.

Merkel announced her intention to allocate 10 billion euros to support industries that will be affected by additional measures to combat coronavirus introduced on November 2. “This significantly exceeds the existing assistance programs and also covers the cultural sector,” the Federal Chancellor said, noting that she will meet with leaders of employers' and industry unions next week to discuss ways to “further mitigate the crisis.”

“I assure you: the federal government will continue to do everything necessary to limit the damage from the pandemic to the economy, and thus to jobs and our well-being, and at the same time – to protect the health of all of us,” the German Chancellor emphasized.

Second wave of coronavirus

At the same time, Merkel has again defended the tightening of measures to combat the coronavirus. “The second wave of the pandemic is forcing us to act quickly and consistently. We must stop the rapid increase in infections without overwhelming our health system,” she explained, warning that “the coming winter will be difficult.”

According to the Robert Koch Institute, another 19,059 people have become infected with the coronavirus in Germany over the past 24 hours. The number of deaths reached 10 452.
