Germany set to extend hard lockdown as daily deaths mount

Germany's disease control center on Tuesday reported 944 more Covid-19 deaths, fueling expectations that Chancellor Angela Merkel and the country's 16 state governors will extend the country's lockdown until the end of the month. Germany’s latest lockdown took effect Dec. 16 after a partial shutdown starting in early November failed to reduce the number of daily new coronavirus infections. It was initially set to expire Jan. 10. FRANCE 24's Nick Spicer tells us more.
