Difficult months ahead of us, Angela Merkel warns
Berlin – German Chancellor Angela Merkel urged the Germans to come together in the spring to slow the spread of coronovirus as the country posted another daily record of new cases on Saturday.
Our behavior will be decided by the coming winter and Christmas in the coming weeks, she said in her weekly video podcast.
Meanwhile, new restrictions came into force in several other European countries in an attempt to prevent a resurgence of the epidemic.
Germany deployed 12,000 police officers to enforce new strict laws.
The other eight French cities, restaurants, bars, movie theaters and other establishments along with Paris were being forced to close after 9 pm to try to reduce mass contact between people.
Many restaurant owners opposed the order as the earlier months-long lockout ravaged the area.
