German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, has isolated herself at home after a doctor she saw last week tested positive to coronavirus.
Merkel’s decision came after her press briefing today in which she imposed restriction on any gathering above two people across Germany.
She was told after the press conference that a doctor who administered a pneumococcal vaccine to her on Friday afternoon has tested positive for COVID-19, government spokesman Steffen Seibert said today.
Merkel would be tested regularly over the coming days and will continue her official duties from home, the spokesperson said.
Germany has about 23,000 cases of confirmed infections as of today.
Germany alsy restricted movement to only people with necessary grounds to do travel. Restaurants have been asked to stay open but only for delivery and pick-ups by customers.
“The great aim is to gain time in the fight against the virus,” Merkel said during the briefing.
