German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been seen shaking in public again, making the third time in less than a month. This has raised concerns over her health even further.
The 64 year old Angela Merkel was shaking and biting her lip as she stood beside Finnish Prime Minister Antti Rinne during an appearance in Berlin on Wednesday. However, Merkel said she is “fine,” that she has been “working through some things” since she was first seen shaking during a June 18 ceremony with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“I am working through some things since the military honors with President Zelensky which do not seem to be over yet, but there is progress and I have to live with it for a while,” Merkel revealed. “Beyond that, I’m firmly convinced that I’m very well capable.”
“I am feeling very well, and there is no reason for concern,” she said on Wednesday.
Recall that Merkel was seen shaking for a second time on June 27 when she attended an event with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier. During the period of her trembling, she appeared to clutch her arms together to keep herself still.
