German Lockdown

German tightens COVID-19 lockdown restrictions to contain surging virus.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the leaders of Germany’s 16 states have agreed to extend the country’s current lockdown through the end of January. Deaths from COVID-19 have risen in recent weeks to around a thousand per day.

Merkel is on Tuesday expected to extend the country’s coronavirus lockdown as its death toll surpassed 35,000.

Angela made the announcement after meeting with the country’s 16 state governors to decide on the length of a possible continuation and to what extent schools will reopen.

The state and federal governments agreed most non-food shops, bars, restaurants, cultural and leisure facilities and schools will remain closed, as well as new rules being brought in, Merkel said.

“We must further reduce our social contacts in order to fight” the pandemic, the Chancellor added.
