German COVID panel to give advice by Christmas as cases ease


Associated Press

BERLIN (AP) — Members of a new expert panel advising the German government on the coronavirus pandemic are holding their first meeting. The meeting Tuesday comes amid signs that government restrictions imposed in recent weeks are beginning to slow infection rates. Germany’s disease control agency reported 30,823 newly confirmed cases in the past 24 hours. That’s compared with 45,753 two weeks ago. Experts say it’s too early to say how the new omicron variant will affect infection rates. Protests against the measures flared in several German states over the weekend and on Monday. German security agencies have warned some who oppose pandemic restrictions are becoming increasingly radicalized.
