Germany's Altmaier isolating after virus contact

German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier revealed on Thursday that he has self-isolated after getting in contact with a person who tested positive for the coronavirus during a trade council meeting in Berlin.

Altmaier doesn't have the COVID-19 at the moment, but has still isolated for one week as a precaution measure. He is the second German minister that went into self-isolation, as Foreign Minister Heiko Maas previously decided to do the same thing after one of his security staff contracted the disease.
