The financial burden “is not pleasant”: NDR star Carlo von Tiedemann (80), who is in inpatient short-term care after health problems and now has to cope with four months of absence from work,: “You have to use your reserves. I have great wealth never owned.” The moderator added: “Fortunately, there are reserves. But they are slowly being used. 40 percent of the costs are reimbursed, no more. I could hardly afford another six months. I’m a freelancer at NDR. That’s what you get not a penny now…”
