What to do in view of the dramatically rising corona numbers? The SPD, Greens and FDP want to adopt a new package of measures in the Bundestag. Follow the debate live now.
In the Bundestag, the corona rules are now being voted on after the so-called epidemic situation of national scope has expired. The traffic light parties have presented a legislative package that reduces the previous catalog of particularly strict containment measures, puts decision-making powers back in the hands of the state parliaments and at the same time makes new rules possible.

However, the plans of the likely upcoming governing parties are met with resistance. Above all, they do not go far enough for the Union.
