"I really am sorry, from the bottom of my heart. But if the price we pay is 590 deaths a day then this in unacceptable." German Chancellor Angela Merkel begs Germans to follow coronavirus restrictions in an unusually emotional appeal ahead of Christmas.
Germans sing the Italian resistance song ‘Bella ciao’ from their rooftops in solidarity with Italians living under coronavirus lockdown.
I'm old enough to remember when the government said wearing masks made no difference, quarantine was not necessary to stop the spread of the virus, and keeping the death toll below 20,000 (The Germans have it at just over 8,000) would be 'a success.'
People are asking why the Germans are getting the virus less - I think its because they wash their Hans. Come on people, we have to keep laughing!
