"The measures we are taking now are suitable, necessary and proportionate," she said on Thursday in a government statement that was interrupted several times by heckling from the ranks of the AfD.

There is no other, milder means than consistent contact restrictions to bring the infection process to a manageable level, Merkel said. It is a matter of reducing the contacts to an "absolutely necessary minimum" in the coming weeks. With a view to the closure of leisure and cultural facilities as well as the gastronomy, the Chancellor said: "I understand the frustration, yes the despair, especially in these areas."

For the Chancellor, the last, perhaps most difficult year of her term of office begins. Dealing with the pandemic is shaking stereotypes about Merkel that have solidified in the 15 years since she was in power. She is so free Angela Merkel, Federal Chancellor since November 22, 2005, is used to celebrating special anniversaries of her Chancellorship in crisis mode.

(CNN) German Chancellor Angela Merkel has agreed to implement a partial second lockdown in a bid to control rising coronavirus cases in the country. Social contacts will be limited to two households in public. Schools and kindergartens will remain open, but have to take strict hygiene measure to do so.

The many hygiene concepts that have been developed are not pointless, they will be needed again later. But in the current infection situation "these hygiene concepts can no longer develop their strength". At the end of her speech, Merkel emphasized: "Winter will be difficult, four long difficult months, but it will end."

AfD parliamentary group leader Alexander Gauland accused the federal government of "war propaganda" in his response to Merkel. The daily "number of infections bombardment" should scare people. "A Corona dictatorship on revocation is incompatible with the free democratic basic order. As far-reaching resolutions as the heads of government of the 16 federal states would have decided on Wednesday together with Merkel, should not be made by parliament.

federal and state governments had on Wednesday decided on an extensive lockdown. It should begin on Monday and last until the end of November. Only people from two households will be allowed to be in public, but a maximum of ten people. Restaurants and bars will have to close, as well as facilities for sports, culture and leisure Schools and daycare centers remain open, other companies can also continue to work. After two weeks, the measures should be reviewed and, if necessary, adjusted.
