  • Germany recorded another 17,270 new infections and 487 deaths over the last 24 hours

Germany will extend restrictive measures created to stem a tide of new COVID-19 infections until January 10, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday after talks with German state leaders.

"The incidence is falling in some federal states, but unfortunately it is still rising in a few", Merkel said late Wednesday. It reported 487 coronavirus-related deaths on Wednesday, reaching a new daily record.

A decision had already been taken to extend the closure of bars, restaurants and gyms until December 20, while meetings with friends and relatives are limited to one other household, and up to a maximum of five people.

Despite a slight loosening of the measures during the Christmas period which will allow more people to meet, Merkel had already said restrictions would run into 2021.

In the past, Germany's many regional and central government bodies have been at odds over how strictly to impose lockdown, since cases were concentrated in the south and west of the country.

With an eye on applications by BioNTech-Pfizer as well as Moderna for the use of their Covid-19 vaccines in Europe, Dr Merkel said 70 million doses in total from both types of vaccines can be delivered in the first quarter of next year if they are given authorisation.

Merkel said she will discuss the measures again with Germany's 16 regional premiers on January 4 at the latest.
