States have gradually relaxed restrictions in the past few months, choosing instead widespread rules for wearing masks and tracking strategies.
However, the number of infections has increased significantly since May and June, when the number of daily cases was in the hundreds, to more than two thousand during the past two weeks.
At the height of the crisis in late March and early April, Germany was registering more than 6,000 new cases per day.
Merkel said at a meeting of party officials on Monday that she is concerned about the recent increase and wants to make every effort to stop the rapid increase in infections, according to German news agency (DPA) sources.
Today’s video conference with state leaders is expected to focus on the rules to be followed at the school, nursing home and corporate level.
According to information obtained by (dpa), the federal government will suggest that celebrations and gatherings in private homes be limited to 25 people, while similar gatherings in public places are limited to 50 people.
Merkel stressed that local hotbeds of infection must be addressed very clearly, otherwise, by Christmas, the number of infections will rise to the same level as the numbers currently recorded in France.
Meanwhile, the German “Robert Koch” Institute for Infectious and Non-communicable Diseases, on Tuesday morning, recorded 2,089 new infections. According to the institute’s data, this brings the total number of confirmed cases of the virus in the country to 287,421.
As of Tuesday morning, the number of deaths due to infection with the virus reached 9,460, an increase of 11 cases compared to Monday. The number of people recovering reached 254,200 cases.
