The German federal government announced it on Tuesday. Up to ten people, or two families, can meet “in public places,” he said.
To try to contain the epidemic of Covid-19, Germany will extend physical distancing measures until June 29. The German federal government announced it on Tuesday, May 26, following an agreement with the country’s 16 regions.
Chancellor Angela Merkel, who fears a second wave of contamination, initially proposed to extend until July 5 the obligation to maintain a distance of one and a half meters between people. In addition to this measure, the agreement found on Tuesday also provides that gatherings of up to 10 people will be authorized again from June 6.
With 8,302 deaths since the start of the epidemic, Germany has been less severely affected by the new coronavirus than other European countries such as France, Spain and Italy. As for the partial lifting of the containment, it has not caused an acceleration in the number of contaminations, for the moment.
