Merkel: Worst part of pandemic is behind us

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Tuesday that the worst part of the coronavirus pandemic has passed.

Speaking to artists after actors criticized the government's COVID-19 restrictions in a video clip, Merkel noted the "emergency brake" is still needed but that things are likely to soon go in a "better direction." She added that the emergence of the British variant of the virus slowed the country's battle with the pandemic but noted vaccinations are helping.

Earlier, German Health Minister Jens Spahn stated that all adults in the country are set to be eligible for a vaccine by June.
