German Vice-Chancellor Olaf Scholz said Chancellor Angela Merkel, who on Sunday went into quarantine after coming into contact with a coronavirus-infected doctor, was healthy but working from home.
Scholz, Germany’s finance minister, told a news conference on Monday in Berlin.
“The Chancellor is healthy at this moment.
“She is active: we had the cabinet meeting together this morning.
“Not with video, but of course we all recognise each others’ voices.
“Otherwise, files are being delivered back and forth and everything is happening as you’d imagine,” he added.
