After contact with an infected with doctor with coronavirus in March, the German chancellor was forced into quarantine. Now she has left her Berlin home for the first time in almost two weeks.

Merkel will continue to observe social distancing rules and lead the country via video and audio conferencing.

“Thankfully the chancellor tested negative for the coronavirus several times … Now the work continues from the chancellery,” said government spokesman Steffen Seibert.
