German Chancellor Angela Merkel is self-quarantining herself after a doctor who administered a vaccine to her has tested positive for coronavirus.
The German government is making it clear that Merkel is doing this as a precaution and hasn’t been diagnosed with coronavirus at the present time.
“The great aim is to gain time in the fight against the virus,” Chancellor Angela Merkel said during a press briefing on Sunday.
Germany currently has more than 23,000 of its citizens who have been afflicted by coronavirus. At least 92 people have died from coronavirus in Germany. They have had to shut down the border with France, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark and Luxembourg in an attempt to stop the spread of the virus.
High-profile government leaders are showing that they are not insulated from the coronavirus pandemic. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) announced his positive test in a social media post on Sunday:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is the latest public official to have tested positive for the COVID-19 Chinese coronavirus, his campaign has announced on social media.
“Senator Rand Paul has tested positive for COVID-19. He is feeling fine and is in quarantine. He is asymptomatic and was tested out of an abundance of caution due to his extensive travel and events. He was not aware of any direct contact with any infected person,” Paul’s campaign wrote in a social media post.
“He expects to be back in the Senate after his quarantine period ends and will continue to work for the people of Kentucky at this difficult time. Ten days ago, our D.C. office began operating remotely, hence virtually no staff has had contact with Senator Paul,” they added.
Last week, it was announced that Reps. Ben McAdams (D-UT) and Mario Díaz-Balart (R-FL) had tested positive for the virus. Paul is the first U.S. Senator to test positive as the cases continue to skyrocket…
Lawmakers are calling for remote voting during the crisis in order to stop the coronavirus pandemic from striking more of the nation’s elite.
“We are undermining our unified bipartisan message to the American people when we come together in the crowded House floor to vote,” wrote a bipartisan group of U.S. House Reps in a letter to congressional leaders.
“The image of over 430 members and approximately 100 staffers clustered together on the House floor during votes is inconsistent with public health guidance from public health officials,” they added.
Merkel will not likely be the last prominent public official to be forced to quarantine as the coronavirus pandemic shows no sign of slowing.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
