Reading Time: < 1 minute

Germany may enforce a nationwide curfew if the country’s 83 million people fail to keep their distance from each other this weekend to curb the spread of coronavirus, government and health leaders said on Friday.

“Everyone needs to be aware that this fight against the virus is a marathon,” Kramp-Karrenbauer announced to a sparsely attended press conference that was shown on public TV station Phoenix. “And at the end it will come down to different capabilities being made available, and that will especially be a task for the Bundeswehr.”

“In these difficult times, the citizens can rely on their Bundeswehr,” she added. The Bundeswehr has already been deployed on various missions to help deal with the current crisis: military planes have been used to fly home German citizens from China, and soldiers have helped set up quarantine facilities in Germany.
