During their segment “Corona – Economic Impact”, Jola’s managing director Lars Mattil explained as a mid-size company from the Palatinate” that he considers direct aid for small to medium size companies as a currently appropriate measure:

„If there were public money now, […] that was easily accessible, that would not have to be repaid as a credit, it would be of tremendous help. It would be a sign demonstrating speed and it would, indeed, help to get through this situation.“
