German Chancellor Angela Merkel was seen trembling in public Wednesday for a third time in less than a month, triggering further speculations about her health.

Merkel, 64, was attending a ceremony with military honors to receive visiting Finland’s Prime Minister Antti Rinne.

She was seen shaking for several minutes while the national anthems were played.

At a joint news conference with Rinne following their meeting, Merkel dismissed concerns about her health.

“I am really fine…You don’t need to worry about my health,” she told reporters.

“I am convinced that I am quite capable of doing my work,” Merkel said.

The German chancellor suffered a similar bout of trembling on June 18, when she was receiving Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Berlin.

On June 27, she was seen shaking for a second time, during a swearing-in ceremony at the Presidency.
