Germany’s first area goes into lockdown

Germany’s first area goes into lockdown since the first wave as the region records massive spike in cases compared to the rest of the country.

German Alpine region goes into lockdown as the first region of the country to do so since the end of the first wave earlier this year.

The Berchtesgaden area starts a two-week lockdown for its 105,000 residents that live along the country’s border with Austria.

While Germany, as a whole, has seen 84 cases per 100,000, however the Berchtesgaden area has seen a substantially larger rate of cases recorded at 273 per 100,000 over the past week. (Euro Weekly)
