New York Times:

Beyond mass testing and the preparedness of the health care system, many also see Chancellor Angela Merkel’s leadership as one reason the fatality rate has been kept low.

Ms. Merkel has communicated clearly, calmly and regularly throughout the crisis, as she imposed ever-stricter social distancing measures on the country. The restrictions, which have been crucial to slowing the spread of the pandemic, met with little political opposition and are broadly followed.

The chancellor’s approval ratings have soared.

“Maybe our biggest strength in Germany,” said Professor Kräusslich, “is the rational decision-making at the highest level of government combined with the trust the government enjoys in the population.”

Well working Public Health System and a strong social system and a Government that is respected by the public: In the times of COVID-19 72% of the German population trust their Government – Grand Coalition of Conservatives and Social Democrats – and its decisions of a lockdown.

Keep your distance and stay healthy
