CoronavirusEuropeNewsMerkel Overturns Decision on Easter Anti-virus Measures – Sources

BERLIN — German Chancellor Angela Merkel has overturned a decision on extra coronavirus measures to be imposed over Easter after widespread criticism, participants in a meeting of federal and state leaders say.

Merkel told participants that an agreement hammered out in overnight talks earlier this week stipulating that most shops will be shut and gatherings will be more limited from April 1-5 would not be implemented.

Criticism of the agreement had centred on the fact that despite marathon talks, key elements of the plan remained unclear.

Industry and business leaders say they have been left in the dark as to what the Easter closures mean in practice. (dpa/NAN)
