‘Don’t run around like bunch of chickens’: SECOND Covid-19 lockdown inevitable if Germany goes too lax on restrictions – minister

Germany’s economy minister issued an unorthodox warning to federal states, telling them to keep calm while relaxing coronavirus restrictions – or face the return of another nationwide shutdown.

“If we keep our nerve now, we can avoid a second lockdown. That is why a joint action by the federal and state governments is so important,” Peter Altmaier, Germany’s economy minister, was quoted as saying by local media.

The nation shouldn’t go too far while Covid-19 is still raging across German cities – infecting close to 144,000 people and killing roughly 4,500 – Altmaier said, using an unusual metaphor to make his point.
