German media reported that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is seeking to amend the law to prevent epidemics, which will enable her to implement drastic measures in the federal provinces, and is supported by representatives of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU/CSU).
The German media quoted government sources as saying: “The purpose of amending the law is to unify measures to respond to the pandemic across the country.”
At present, measures to respond to the pandemic have been promulgated under the “Pandemic Disease Protection Act”, but the implementation of the measures implemented at the federal level is the responsibility of the federal provinces, which has led to 16 federal provinces to take different measures.
The German Chancellor has repeatedly expressed dissatisfaction with the different measures taken by the federal states.
The changes in the law will allow the federal authorities to take strict measures in all cities that exceed the recognized epidemiological value, regardless of the provincial authorities.
According to media reports, the Prime Minister received the support of members of the CDU/Colorado State University Union Parliamentary Assembly in the Bundestag. The Parliament plans to launch a parliamentary initiative in the next few days to change the Infection Protection Act.
Norbert Roettgen, chairman of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), told the “Daily News”: “Our goal is not to take over the functions of the federal provinces. This is to make the central government efficient again.”
German Chancellor Angela Merkel (Angela Merkel) has long criticized the federal states for their unwillingness to take stricter measures if the 7-day incidence rate rises above 100.
Some federal provinces ruled by the Social Democratic Party and the Federal Democratic Union (CDU/CSU) formed a coalition government, and they announced a resistance to the change of power initiative.
Chancellor Merkel argued that regardless of the epidemic situation, these provinces would oppose the idea of a single brief and powerful blockade in all federal states.
