Germany’s outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel warned on Monday that current restrictions in the country "are not enough anymore" before the "dramatic situation" caused by the outbreak of covid-19 infections, according to sources in his party.

With the current evolution and the daily records of infections, the health situation "it’s going to be worse than anything we’ve seen so far", He also warned before leaders of his party, the conservative CDU, according to a source of the formation asked by AFP.

Germany, especially the southern and eastern regions, is being affected by a new wave of infections, which experts and politicians attribute to one of the lowest vaccination rates (68%) in Western Europe.

Faced with the resurgence of the virus, which has killed more than 99,000 people in the country since its appearance, the outgoing Foreign Minister and her likely successor, Olaf Scholz, already decided last week to tighten restrictions on unvaccinated people.
