Serhat TUNAR -TDO- German President Frank Walter Steinmeier has announced that the Coronavirus outbreak is likely to spiral out of control.
The fact that tens of thousands of people are infected with the virus every day and hundreds of people die due to the outbreak shows that efforts to fight coronavirus are not enough, Steinmeier said, so they have to take drastic measures.
In a video message, the German President said: "the virus still has an effect on us. Therefore, from Wednesday, our public and private lives will be severely restricted as never before in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany. The situation is very serious. There's an epidemic that threatens thousands of deaths and out-of-control in a week. So we have to take drastic measures."
"We've all come a long way in the last few months, let's continue together and think about each other and come to the end. I'm sure the epidemic can't steal our future. We'll get through this crisis. We must succeed."
