Hundreds of thousands in coronavirus quarantine in Germany: minister

BERLIN (Reuters) - Hundreds of thousands of people in Germany are in quarantine because they have tested positive for the coronavirus or have come into contact with someone who has COVID-19, Health Minister Jens Spahn said on Tuesday.

Spahn, giving his first news conference since recovering from COVID-19, said he felt humbled by his experience and was grateful that he had not been hit by more serious symptoms.
