Face Masks Will Soon Be Mandatory In Germany

Germany has reported more than 150,000 coronavirus infections, according to Johns Hopkins University. The death toll has risen to 5,094, the country’s centre for disease control, the Robert Koch Institute, said on Thursday.

As from next week Monday, wearing of face mask on public transportation and in stores will be mandatory in all states in Germany.

German Chancellor, Angela Merkel has always advocated that people wear masks, and last week, the federal state of Saxony in the east of the country pushed further, making wearing of masks compulsory to curb the spread of coronavirus.

According to CNN, more and more state leaders have implemented the wearing of masks in their states. Bremen became the last federal region to support the initiative and its senate is set to approve the decision on Friday.

Angela Merkel says Germany is still at the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, warning the situation will remain very difficult for some time.

In an address to the Bundestag, the lower house of the German parliament, Merkel told lawmakers: 

“We will be living with this virus for a long time to come”. According to CNN, she vowed to further boost testing for the virus: “Testing, testing, testing is the way forward,” she said. She warned that “We cannot return to daily life like before the virus. Let’s remain clever and careful during the pandemic”.
