German Chancellor Angela Merkel wants to extend the lockdown in her country until February 15.
The newspaper Bild reports this in the run-up to the consultations between the chancellor and the leaders of the federal states.
The drivers must decide whether to extend the lockdown in their country. It now runs until the end of January. In Germany, non-essential shops and schools have been closed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The next round of the corona policy summit was actually scheduled to occur on January 25 but has been brought forward.
Merkel and state prime ministers are also expected to talk about the possible introduction of stricter measures. For example, it may be a kind of duty to work from home or the obligation to wear FFP2 masks in shops and public transport.
