Report: Germany to extend lockdown until Jan. 31

Germany will extend its coronavirus lockdown until January 31, the Bild reported on Monday.

Chancellor Angela Merkel and state government officials are expected to agree on the extension of restrictions on Tuesday, however, the country's Health Minister Jens Spahn already hinted at the possibility of the measures lasting beyond January 10 over the weekend.

"The numbers are still too high, so we will have to prolong the restrictions. Infection rates had to be sustainably reduced. That is better than loosening too early and then, perhaps in as little as a few weeks, facing new and difficult questions," Spahn said.
