A little over a week after banning gatherings of more than two people, the government continues to ask Germans to avoid contact with people outside their own households, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday. "It's far too early to now begin considering loosening contact restrictions - we're still far from where we want to be," Dr Merkel said, adding that the government wants to revisit those measures after Easter.
