Germany wants to reopen the country’s bars and restaurants as early as this weekend. The chancellor has also spoken out in favor of lifting restrictions on schools and sports.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has spoken out in favor of lifting more coronavirus restrictions in Germany, including those placed on schools and sporting events.
According to sources who attended a digital party meeting of Merkel’s conservative Christian Democratics, the chancellor acknowledged an “understandable” desire for more restrictions to be lifted, and said that she was in favor of a step-by-step reopening of schools and nurseries as well as large and small sporting events.
Merkel said such decisions were to be decided on a state-by-state level, and that states must make sure that new steps to relax restrictions don’t unleash a second wave of infections. The chancellor said she supported a regional, graded approach to lifting restriction, in which the infection rate in a given area is considered before security measures there are relaxed.
