The Federal government is rising in the race for a Corona vaccine at Curevac. The German Corona vaccine developer receives an injection of funds, the government securities. However, the approach has not only supporters.
Berlin (dpa) - The CDU economic Council, has called on the Federal government, a binding scenario at the German Biotech provider, Curevac, to present.
General Secretary Wolfgang Steiger said the dpa: "We need for this participation is a mandatory exit scenario. We also need to hold on to in times of crisis, the principles of our Social market economy, which have made our country successful. The reluctance of the state to intervene in the property right belongs."
The Federal government is rising in the race for a Corona vaccine at Curevac and also wants to prevent a possible Takeover from abroad. As economy Minister, Peter Altmaier (CDU) announced, takes on the government development Bank KfW for a 300 million euros, approximately 23 percent of the shares. The objective of this step is to give the companies of the majority shareholder Dietmar Hopp's financial security. On business decisions, the state would have no influence. The company, based in Tübingen, is researching since January on a vaccine against the Coronavirus.
Steiger argued, the Council was very skeptical as to what regards the state's participation in the case of Curevac. "The entry in the case of a Biotech company must remain the absolute exception. Dietmar Hopp would have driven as a well-known socially responsible entrepreneur and strategic Investor, certainly not a sell-out or no vaccine quotas for Germany backed up."
