In the summer of 2019, Merkel was repeatedly thrown into violent shivers during official ceremonies. The ex-chancellor explained that the attacks were associated with stress due to the death of the mother and the restriction in drinking
Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that the trembling attacks that she had in 2019 during her stay in office, were caused by stress due to the death of the mother. Merkel said this in a television interview with Spiegel journalist Alexander Osang, T-online reports.
As the former chancellor explained, she was very emaciated after the death of her mother. In addition, the restriction in drinking was partly the cause of the seizures — according to Merkel, she drank very little at the time. Angela Merkel's mother Gerlinde Kasner died at the age of 90 in April 2019.
Merkel had her first seizure in June 2019 during a meeting in Berlin with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The politician trembled violently during the official ceremony. Later, she drank several glasses of water and felt better.
The second attack occurred less than two weeks later during a meeting with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier. Third— in July during a meeting with the then Prime Minister of Finland, Antti Rinne.
After that, the attacks were repeated several times, and Merkel was even forced to listen to the national anthems while sitting, which is a violation of the protocol.
Then the chancellor claimed that everything was in order with her health, and expressed confidence that the attacks would pass by themselves .
