Germany's Scholz: Extra measures to curb virus spread should be targeted, temporary

Author: Justin Low | Category: News

Comments by German finance minister, Olaf Scholz

  • The dramatic increase in infections is very worrying
  • Extra measures should be targeted, temporary and focused
  • Ideally, they should be applied in such a manner nationwide
