    In a statement, Bouffier said that the state's leadership has received the news with "sadness and disbelief."
    Bouffier also said that Schäfer had been living under considerable worry and stress because of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
    "His main concern was whether he could manage to fulfill the huge expectations of the population, especially in terms of financial aid," Bouffier said on Sunday. "For him, there was clearly no way out. He was disappointed and so he had to leave us. That has shocked us, has shocked me."
    "Our sincere condolences go to his closest relatives," he added.
    Outgoing CDU chief Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said Schäfer's sudden death "shocked me, shocked all of us" in the party. "It has hit us and left us sad and stunned," she wrote on Twitter.

    It's a difficult job to say the least at the moment. Our government are doing a remarkable job.

    Its estimated that 260,000 cancer deaths resulted from the 2008 financial melt down.
    And 10,000 additional suicides.


    The aftermath of corona will make that look minor imo.
