German Chancellor Angela Merkel told leaders of her Conservative Party that measures taken to stop the spread of the coronavirus in Europe’s largest economy were insufficient and that stronger measures must be taken, Reuters reported on Monday. Read more

The number of cases in Germany has skyrocketed, especially among the elderly whose first two injections of the COVID-19 vaccine took place earlier this year, and among children who are not eligible for vaccination.

Earlier this month, the World Health Organization (WHO) said European countries must redouble their efforts to prevent the coronavirus from spreading further as deaths and new cases rise.

Current transmission rates in 53 European countries are a “serious concern” and new cases are approaching record levels, exacerbated by the more transmissible Delta variant of the virus, warned Hans Kluge of the WHO. “We need to change our tactics, to react to outbreaks of COVID-19, to prevent them from happening in the first place,” he said.

Germany has already decided to limit much of public life in areas where hospitals are filling up with COVID-19 patients.

Neighboring Austria imposed a full COVID-19 lockdown on Monday after announcing new restrictions last week. Acting German Health Minister Jens Spahn warned on Friday that Germany could follow suit.

The CDC has separately lowered its COVID-19 travel advisory from level four to “level three: low” for Israel, Aruba, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Curacao and Guadeloupe.
