Angela Merkel Now Quarantined After Doctor Tests Positive for Chinese Coronavirus….

The leader of the most powerful nation in the EU, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, is now in quarantine after her personal physician tests positive for the Wuhan Virus.

BERLIN (AP) — German Chancellor Angela Merkel has gone into quarantine after being informed that a doctor who administered a vaccine to her has tested positive for the new coronavirus.

Merkel, 65, was informed about the doctor’s test shortly after holding a news conference Sunday announcing new measures to curb the spread of the virus, her spokesman Steffen Seibert said.  He said that Merkel had received a precautionary vaccine Friday against pneumococcal infection.

[…] Merkel on Sunday thanked “the overwhelming majority” of Germans who were following rules on social distancing to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

“I know that it means sacrifice,” she said, citing the economic and social costs that the lockdown is having. “I’m moved by the fact that so many are abiding by these rules. This way we show care for older and sick people, because the virus is most dangerous to them. In short: we are saving lives with this.”

Merkel said the lockdown had already affected her profoudly, too.

“My life has also fundamentally changed and now consists largely of phone calls and video conferences,” she said.  (read more)

    The best to Ms.Merke;l.

    Germany isa thoroughly socialized medicine and will keep close tabs on infections in which age demographic along with the resulting / illness or mortality.

    Notes can be compared and shared about treatments used and results obtained. I look upon a time when German and U.S. cooperation can result in better health results for both countries.

    Is it common for a 65 year old to receive a precautionary vaccine for pneumococcal infections, which are usually associated with children?

      You ISOLATE ill persons who have a communicable disease from those who are healthy. Isolation restricts the movement of ill persons to help stop the spread of certain diseases. For example, hospitals use isolation for patients with infectious tuberculosis.

      You QUARANTINE well persons (separating them from the rest of the population and restricting their movements) who may have been exposed to a communicable disease to see if they become ill. These people may have been exposed to a disease and do not know it, or they may have the disease but do not show symptoms. Quarantine can also help limit the spread of communicable disease.

    Poor old Angle-a. I wouldn’t wish a disease upon anyone, but she helped make Western Europe into what it is today – a socialist democratic enclave – the newly formed united socialist states of Europe.

    When outsiders are invited in with no limits or restrictions, diseases come into the territory. Those who do not know or care about European history need to learn it. Their leaders need to learn it too, and they might learn it… the hard way.

        @Snellvillebob: “….…….she is now in Quarantine”! 🙂

        I’m sure the add’l 35,000 American soldiers having just arrived in Germany is causing her nightmares and rightly so.
        She’s been having the shakes for a long time now getting worse each time and I would not be surprised if she was treated for it rather than the reported ‘vaccination’.

        Keep an eye on Europe there is more going on then meets the eye and Merkel’s ‘quarantine’ timed with the arrival of the 35,000 US soldiers has lots more meaning.

      That’s preparedness, as was taught in boy and girl scouts. Our parents taught it to us too. Several decades of running a government economy based upon debt and consumerism trumps preparedness. How to destroy a nation, 101. That’s not taught in colleges.

      Adversity builds character. No adversity at all, no character, at all.

      MfM,
      Appreciate the sentiment, but “we” are,NOT shutting everything down, to save you or me.
      We are doing it all, to prevent a COLLAPSE of the healthcare system.

      And by that, I DO NOT mean the way “Heathcare” has been conflating with PAYING for healthcare.

      I mean a collapse of the vital industry of primarily hospitals, secondarily dr.’s offices, and ancillary support businesses.

      Imagine getting in a,car,wreck, having a steering wheel embedded in your chest or something, and NONE of the Hospitals are excepting patients. Or, hou have a heart attack or,stroke, kid gets meningitis, appendix burzts, whatever.

      And they can’t even put the patient on a plane, and send them to another State, cause ALL the hospitals in the country are similarly overwhelmed.

      THATS what they are experiencing in Italy, what they experienced in CHI-NA, and what they are trying to avoid experiencing here, with this draconian lock down.

      IMHO, they haven’t explained that clearly enough, either cause they don’t want to cause panic, or perhaps because its so obvious to them?

      This is why comparing it to the flu is irrelevant. With the flu, within 24 hours of getting it, and so becoming contagious, you are self-isolating, because of the symptoms, which limits how many people you can infect.

      With this, you can go 2 WEEKS without having symptoms, and so infect 100’s or potentially 1000’s.

      Hence, the disease can reach a lot more of the ‘vulnerable’ population, who all pour into the ER’S at once.

      And, with flu, treatment for those who need hospitalisation is I.V. fluids, and oxygen.

      With this disease, the critical patients need ventilator and intubation, as well as much more extensive isolation, cause almost ALL the patients already in the Hospital are “high risk”, and caregivers can easily spread the disease to them.

      So, its NOT about “saving lives”, its about saving the HEALTHCARE SYSTEM, keeping it from becoming overwhelmed, and basically unable to function.

    I think we should consider where we were….all of us on this planet……, where we were prior to the virus outbreak.

    So much hatred ….so many divisions…….it seemed to most… virtually impossible to correct the ingrained hate……and prejudice shown by so many…..even by many here

    My point is:

    President Trump saved us…….he saved us all………..Many believe God sent him to save us………

    Many people now see how our President was correct…The Wall….Illegal Aliens…..China….all of it.

    And now more and more people believe in him

    I believe God may have “Sent us the Virus”…..to show everyone….all of us……including Angela and others “The Way”….as our President has………

    Now for all of our grievances……all….our anger
