Germany to extend lockdown until Dec 20

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Germany will extend restrictive measures until Dec. 20 to slow the spread of the Covid-19.

Merkel said that while existing measures have succeeded in halting a surge in new coronavirus infections, they have stabilized at a high level.

“The exponential growth of infection numbers has been broken, the steep curve has become a flattened curve,” Merkel said after talks with leaders of Germany’s federal states. “But infection numbers remain at a level that is far too high.”

Germany has reported more than 983,700 COVID-19 cases.
