Virus latest: Germany’s health minister says cancel concerts, stay homemain
The German Health Minister Jens Spahn has said steps must be taken to slow down the spread of Coronavirus in his country.
He said that organisers of events with more than 1,000 people taking part should cancel them. He further advises the public to stay home as much as possible.
‘Consider also what in your daily life is so important that you can’t do without it for the next three months, whether that’s an evening clubbing, a family birthday or a club meeting,’ he sad.
Germany has 902 confirmed Coronavirus cases as of Sunday night, far fewer than Italy, three times as many as the UK.
