GERMAN’S CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL REVERSES PLANS FOR EASTER LOCKDOWN
Written by wave FM on March 25, 2021
German Chancellor ANGELA MERKEL has cancelled plans for a strict lockdown over Easter, just a day after the measures were announced.
Calling the plan, a “mistake”, MERKEL said she took “ultimate responsibility” for the U-turn.
The proposed lockdown was agreed with regional leaders in talks overnight on Monday, with restrictions set to be tightened between 1-5 April.
But the plan was reversed following a crisis meeting on Wednesday.
