Chancellor Angela Merkel defended the tough cuts against an uncontrolled spread of the corona pathogen in Germany as necessary. "The measures we are taking now are appropriate, necessary and proportionate," said Merkel in her government statement in the Bundestag.

The many hygiene concepts that have been developed are not pointless, they will be needed again later.
