"We hope that due to the fact that the vaccination program is accelerating very dynamically and that the period of May and June last year showed that this number of infections was decreasing, it will lead to the fact that in the summer there will be chances the holiday to realize for some extent," said Müller when asked what would have to happen for this year's holiday to be spent under normal conditions.

The government spokesman noted that whether it would be in full scope, as it was two years ago, "at the moment no one will say it with full responsibility".
