Söder would like to at least allow family celebrations for Christmas: Christmas should be "freer", "but New Year's Eve more consistent", he explained. The SPD-governed countries also want relaxation for the holidays so that close friends and families can see each other, as the "BamS" reports on.

The value is currently around 140. The federal and state governments will discuss how to proceed on Wednesday.

support should continue.

Federal Finance Minister Scholz announced even before the deliberations that the aid for companies that have to close due to the corona restrictions will continue to be paid in December if necessary. "If the restrictions are extended, it is clear to me that the financial support of the sectors directly affected will then also continue to be necessary," said the Vice Chancellor and SPD candidate for chancellor.
