BERLIN, KOMPAS.com – The German Health Minister expressed that the EU country will not require coronavirus lockdowns over the winter despite rising infections.

Minister Jens Spahn on Wednesday asserted that undertaking another lockdown will not be necessary to keep the coronavirus under control.

In recent weeks, the number of coronavirus cases in Germany has risen sharply raising fears of a second wave of coronavirus infections in the Western European state.

The EU member-state had kept infections and deaths relatively low compared to its European neighbors.

Spahn said experts and politicians were learning more about the virus every day.

While a blanket lockdown in March had been the right thing to do at the time to protect the weakest in society, it would not be needed again, he said.

"We will certainly not need to do this nationwide," Spahn said, adding that regional authorities could handle outbreaks.

"We can go into autumn and winter with confidence," he told a news conference.
