Good morning together on another day in #Flockdown! The frost still has a firm grip on Germany. In the south, too, the early spring is gradually giving way to icy cold, but for now let’s make ourselves comfortable with a look at the relevant news from the last 24 hours – with the first hot coffee of the day.
