Merkel: We can avoid another national lockdown in Germany

BERLIN, Sept 30 (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday that she wanted to do everything in her power to avoid another national lockdown as coronavirus infection numbers rise again in Europe’s largest economy, adding that she believed this was possible.

“We all want to avoid a second national shutdown and we can do that,” Merkel said, adding that people knew much more about how to protect themselves and the health system than they did back in March, when a national lockdown was implemented. (Reporting by Michelle Adair Editing by Paul Carrel)
