Germany is likely to extend a national blockade beyond January 10 to curb the steady rise in coronavirus cases. Chancellor Angela Merkel and regional leaders are likely to announce the extension when they meet on Tuesday.
On the other hand, German Health Minister Jens Spahn said: “The numbers are still too high, so we will have to extend the restrictions“.
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reported 9,847 new infections on Monday and 302 deaths, bringing the total number of deaths to 34,574.
