For a month, cafes, restaurants, gyms, and brothels are closed in the country. The new restrictions will take effect on November 2.
Thus, the German Chancellor held a videoconference with the heads of 16 federal states, at which a previously developed plan for new quarantine restrictions is being discussed, which will be in effect until the end of November.
According to the plan, in Germany will be closed: theaters and concert halls; cinemas, attractions, and amusement parks; fitness studios, sports facilities, swimming pools, and brothels; bars, restaurants, and pubs (except for takeaway work); beauty salons, massage rooms, tattoo studios.
Schools and kindergartens will remain open but will be required to introduce new hygiene protocols.
It is reported that in about two weeks, roughly November 11, Merkel will again hold such an online meeting to discuss and evaluate the results achieved, as well as make the necessary adjustments.
Earlier, German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed concern about the development of the coronavirus epidemic in the country and warned of more than 19 thousand infections per day by Christmas.
