The spokesman said that the meeting will discuss measures to halt the advance of the pandemic, which added another 45,753 cases, an increase of 55.8 percent, and killed 388 people.
The acting Foreign Minister, Helge Braun, revealed that the actions should be aimed at reducing by 60 to 70 percent the contacts in the regions with the highest incidence, while at the same time mandatory vaccination is being considered, as about 15 million adults have yet to be immunized.
The meeting will take place within a complex sanitary and political scenario, because while the Government is considering greater restrictions to face the increase of Covid-19 cases, the protests of those who oppose them are increasing.
Last Monday, thousands of people took to the streets in several cities in central and northeastern Germany, such as Rostock, Greifswald and New Brandenburg, to demonstrate against the measures imposed to curb infections.
According to official data, the total number of cases in this country, with 83.24 million inhabitants, amounts to 5,836,000 infected, of which 842,100 remain active and 101,344 died as a result of this disease.
