However, a spokeswoman for the Economy Ministry said there are no final growth forecasts yet. Spiegel reports that they will be unveiled next week.

As we reported before, on April 20, authorities of five EU countries lifted part of the quarantine restrictions imposed in the fight against the coronavirus epidemic.

Germany allows opening commercial areas of less than 800 square meters, as well as car dealerships, bicycle shops, and book shops.

Also, the government of the German federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern decided on the mandatory use of protective masks that cover the mouth and nose of a person in public transport.

Mecklenburg-Vorpommern became the second federal state in Germany, where authorities made such a decision.
