On Wednesday, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government is expected to hold a meeting with the German states’ governments to discuss further measures to combat the coronavirus pandemic. According to some media reports, the new measures could involve a tougher approach to the hospitality sector including the closure of restaurants and a ban on major events. Schools and daycare centers could also be shuttered in the regions with the highest infection rates.
The surge in new infections over the past weeks has prompted authorities in various German states to severely limit the number of people from various households that are allowed to meet. In Hamburg, up to 25 people can come together in a private setting while most other German states set the maximum number of people that can meet either indoors or publicly at 10 – all in the name of social distancing to curb the spread of Covid-19.
