Germans are facing further lockdown restrictions as ministers in Berlin admitted the country faced a dire shortage of coronavirus vaccines. The country, like many other European nations, is facing a third wave of Covid. Sky News correspondent Michelle Clifford has reported that the German Government has been forced to admit publically that there is simply “not enough vaccine” to keep rising cases at bay.
It comes as Germany’s health minister Jens Spahn talked down the likelihood that coronavirus restrictions will be lifted.
He pointed to rising infections and warned that measures to slow the spread of the virus may have to be re-imposed.
Spahn told a weekly news conference on Friday: “The rising case numbers may mean that we cannot take further opening steps in the weeks to come.
On the contrary, we may even have to take steps backwards.”
