The German Chancellor used her weekly podcast to also call on Germans to step forward for their third booster jab as she said it was vital that the nation protects themselves and others amid soaring covid cases.

Ms Merkel said: “Now the vaccine is here all we have to do is grab it! Grab it fast!

“I beg you, join in and try to convince relatives and friends too.

“If we stand together if we think about protecting ourselves and caring for others…

“We can save our country a lot this winter.”

Following her jabs demands, Ms Merkel issued an honest warning that there were “very difficult weeks ahead of us”.

And she even went so far as to say ”you can see that I am very worried” about the virus as she made her emotional plea to the public.

Ms Merkel then went on to call on Germans who are already double jabbed to get a third booster shot to protect themselves against the virus.

She stressed how the booster jabs are “a real chance to break the severe fall and winter wave of the pandemic”.
