German Cabinet Agrees to 750 Billion Euros in Emergency Aid Measures

As the corona crisis sweeps over Germany, the government in Berlin has assembled an unprecedented aid package aimed at supporting families, renters, employees, freelancers and companies. The cabinet, under the leadership of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, agreed on Monday to several vast protective measures and far-reaching changes to the legal code. To ensure that the aid reaches its intended recipients quickly, the Bundestag, Germany’s parliament, is to consider the aid packages on Wednesday, with the Bundesrat, the German deliberative body that represents the country’s 16 federal states, following on Friday.
