German Chancellor Angela Merkel has quarantined herself at home after coming into contact with a doctor who tested positive for coronavirus.
The German leader spoke earlier Sunday at a news conference, where she detailed new restrictions to try to contain the spread of the virus.
Asked how she is dealing with the situation, she replied: “I’ve canceled almost all appointments where people would have come into the chancellery or where I would have gone to people. So my life has also changed fundamentally and consists mainly of telephone and video conferences.”
