Pollster Infratest Dimap has just published its latest ARD-Deutschlandrend, a monthly nationwide survey. The poll was taken before the latest lockdown announcements. According to the poll, most Germans want coronavirus restrictions to be eased. The government's approval ratings have dropped.
Germany is extending its coronavirus shutdown by three weeks until March 28. But some restrictions will be eased to allow non-essential stores and other businesses to reopen in areas with relatively low infection rates. Chancellor Angela Merkel announced the plan after talks with state leaders continued well into the night. They agreed new measures – intended to offer a glimmer of hope that life will soon return to some kind of normal.
