According to the German media, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, for the three quarters of 2020, DB losses amounted to about 5.6 billion euros.

Now only 20% of long-distance trains go on routes and only half of regional ones. The crisis also affected freight transport. The probability that DB will pay off in the near future is slim. The federal government has been slow to sponsor a generous capital injection for DB.
