BERLIN - Chancellor Angela Merkel told Germans to expect a difficult winter as the number of newly reported coronavirus cases in the country hit a new high.
Merkel spoke Thursday in Parliament a day after she and the governors of Germanys 16 states agreed upon far-reaching restrictions to curb the spread of the virus, including the closure of bars and restaurants, limits on social contacts and bans on concerts and other public events.

The long-time German leader said authorities had no choice but to drastically reduce social contacts as three-quarters of infections in Germany now cant be traced be traced anymore.
If we wait until the ICUs are full, then it will be too late, she said.

Merkel leads the Euro Never Trumpers. Between now and Our Election on Tuesday, France and others will follow her lead, to scare investors around the World and American voters.

I wonder if one has to do with the other?
Wintertime for Merkel and Germany.
