Coronavirus: Angela Merkel backs short national lockdown | News | DW | 07.04.2021

A German government spokeswoman on Wednesday said the chancellor was in favor of a short nationwide lockdown to help stem rising coronavirus figures.

As Germany struggles to tackle a third wave of the COVID pandemic, and amid a sluggish vaccination campaign, several leaders of German states have backed calls for a period of strict restrictions.

“Every call for a short, uniform lockdown is right,” said deputy government spokeswoman Ulrike Demmer. “Also, a common nationwide approach would be important here.”

The differing rules across the country’s 16 states “is not contributing to security and acceptance at the moment,” she added.
