    During the visit of the Minister of Health in Ukraine, not everything went smoothly: Lauterbach was stuck together with his Ukrainian counterpart Viktor Lyashko.

    Lviv/Berlin.

    The Federal Minister of Health, Karl Lauterbach, went downhill for a short time during his visit to the Ukraine on Friday.

    The SPD politician was stuck in an elevator with his Ukrainian counterpart Viktor Ljaschko as Lauterbach wrote in a “last tweet about the Ukraine trip” and illustrated it with a photo. The lift suddenly dropped a meter. “At first nobody wanted to climb out…”, Lauterbach added.

    The health minister was received by Lyashko in Lviv in western Ukraine. Lauterbach started direct medical aid for war victims, took part in a donor conference to set up a rehabilitation center for war invalids and met fire victims and other seriously injured people. “The trip to the Ukraine was full of important impressions and information,” Lauterbach summed up at the end.

    Warning about Corona in autumn

    On Saturday, the minister spoke again about problems that concern him in Germany. With a view to a wave of flu in Australia, he warned that without mask protection and contact restrictions in the fall, there could be a “very dangerous combination of COVID and flu in the fall and winter”. A successful vaccination campaign against both is therefore necessary and is already being prepared. (dpa)
