Information about the Corona Virus
The DAAD is closely following the developments regarding the coronavirus in order to flexibly react to changing situations. In affected areas, we are in contact with scholarship holders, their families and local employees in order to provide them with the best possible support.
When an infection is confirmed, the authorities of the respective country decide what measures must be taken (e.g. quarantine). In Germany, very few cases of infection have occurred. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) continuously monitors the current situation, evaluates all information, coordinates official measures and estimates that the risk for the German population is low (as of 27/02/2020).
Please be aware that the situation may change at any time and heed the updated warnings issued by authorities, particularly the RKI, and the travel advisories by the Federal Foreign Office. The authorities are continuously sharing information and evaluating current developments. Please find updated Information on the DAAD homepage.
