Spahn calls for 'significant' contact restrictions

German Health Minister Jens Spahn warned on Friday that the COVID-19 situation in the country is "dramatic" and called for a "significant reduction" in contacts to curb the spread of the virus. He proposed "at least the cancellation of major events and celebrations" and called for a government meeting to discuss new restrictions.

Turning to the new coronavirus variant, Spahn said it is too early to draw any conclusions, including whether vaccines are effective against it. Germany will suspend most travel from South Africa as it monitors the variant, which is "very concerning."
