BERLIN (AP) — Germany coach Joachim Löw thinks the coronavirus pandemic is a sign that Earth is “defending itself a bit” against modern society, and said the widespread outbreak should be a wake-up call for people focused only on ”power, greed, profit.”
Löw addressed media via a remote link on Wednesday, a day after the European Championship was postponed until next year because of the virus.
“The last few days have made me very thoughtful. The world has experienced a collective burnout. Not just individuals but everyone,” the 60-year-old Löw said. “I have the feeling the Earth seems to be defending itself a bit against people who always think that they can do everything and know everything.”
