As part of the COVID 19 pandemic 2020, Kekulé made several public statements that Germany was not sufficiently prepared for a possible epidemic. While he initially believed that the virus was not a major threat, he later called for significantly stricter measures to combat the epidemic, such as interventions at German airports. With the beginning of the epidemic in Germany, Kekulé emphatically represented his demand for two-week “Corona Holidays” for schools and kindergartens, which was also implemented from Monday, March 16, 2020. Large events should all be canceled and domestic German trips reduced to a minimum. However, he also warned of “super horror scenarios” regarding the spread of the corona virus in Germany. The MDR produces the Kekulés Corona Compass podcast every working day.
