BERLIN (Reuters) - German Health Minister Jens Spahn told newspaper Handelsblatt that the coronavirus infection numbers in Germany were showing a “positive trend” and if that continued, it would be possible to talk about a gradual return to normality after the Easter break.
He said citizens sticking to the restrictions on public life over the Easter holiday was a precondition for a possible easing of the lockdown.
Chancellor Angela Merkel has said Germany will re-evaluate the situation after the Easter holiday.
