Angela Merkel is known for her vigorous promotion of mouth and nose protection in the fight against the corona crisis - but the Chancellor herself wears a mask ? Or is she deliberately avoiding photos with a mask like US President Donald Trump, just to show no picture of weakness?

The Chancellor had a very simple and pragmatic answer on Monday when she appeared at the Meseberg Castle with French President Emmanuel Macron.

"If I adhere to the distance rules, I do not need to put on the mask"

"If I adhere to the distance rules, I do not need to put on the mask. And if I don't comply with them and I go shopping, for example, then we won't meet, obviously, ”she says with a smile to a journalist who wants to know why Merkel has never been seen with a mask. "Otherwise you could have seen me with a mask. But I'm not going to tell you when I'm going to shop where, ”Merkel adds.

Of course she adheres to the procedures recommended by the Robert Koch Institute in the pandemic, the Chancellor asserts. And then she makes it a little bit more exciting: "There will be other occasions where I will surely still be seen with a mask." Aha. The photographers will have heard that with interest. (RND)
