Coronavirus: Germany eases lockdown

From Morning Report, 6:16 am on 20 April 2020

Germany will start to ease some of its restrictions on Monday after declaring its coronavirus outbreak "under control".

The health minister Jens Spahn credits this to a lockdown imposed after an early surge in cases.

Mr Spahn says that since 12 April the number of recovered patients had been consistently higher than the number of new infections.
