German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, has gone into home quarantine after a doctor who gave her a vaccination on Friday tested positive for coronavirus.
Merkel’s spokesman, Steffen Seibert, announced in a statement on Sunday.
Seibert also stated that the chancellor will continuously be tested for coronavirus because a test at this early stage would not be reliable, adding that she would continue her full workload from her quarantine.
Earlier on Sunday, Germany implemented a “contact ban” rather than a full nationwide lockdown in an effort to curb the spread of coronavirus.
Merkel said in a press conference that the Country would toughen measures and “reduce contact with people as much as possible.
