Germany moves toward tightening partial lockdown against Covid-19

Germany is moving toward extending and tightening its shutdown restrictions, setting measures that would rein in New Year’s festivities as the country struggles to slow the rapid spread of the coronavirus. Germany’s regional leaders are proposing that a partial lockdown that was due to run until the end of November get extended until at least Dec 20. The measures would be rolled over for periods of two weeks if contagion rates remain above the government’s target level, according to a briefing paper drawn up by the officials and published in German media.
