A German government Spokesman Steffen Seibert: "The Chancellor has decided to quarantine herself at home".
Angela Merkel has decided to go into self-quarantine after having contact with a doctor who tested positive for COVID-19.
“The Chancellor has decided to quarantine herself at home. She will be tested regularly in the coming days… (and) fulfill her official business from home,” Steffen Seibert said in a statement.
The Chancellor will try to do as much work as she can from home in the coming days and at the time when Germany has taken more aggressive measures to tackle Coronavirus.
“Even from domestic quarantine, the Chancellor will continue her official business”, Seibert said.
