Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned that Germany is “still far from out of the woods” despite slowing infection rates, and everyone needs to be vigilant in order to make sure the ‘fragile’ recovery remains on track.

Merkel said that Germans still need to show “discipline and resilience” in their battle against Covid-19, even if there are fewer cases now. She told the Bundestag that the country was “in this for the long haul,” reminding people that they couldn’t afford to be complacent.

Merkel believes that “endurance and discipline” at the start of this health crisis will ensure a faster and more sustainable return to economic, social and public life.
