Merkel says coronavirus reacts more aggressively at lower temperatures

BERLIN, Nov 2 (Reuters) - The coronavirus reacts differently and more aggressively at lower temperatures and Germany has had to react with new restrictions on public life to protect its health system, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday.

“We can’t allow this rapid spread of the virus to overwhelm our health system,” she told a news conference, saying the number of people with the coronavirus in intensive care units has doubled in the last 10 days.
