Germany's Merkel expects infection rates to rise with colder weather

BERLIN (Reuters) – German Chancellor Angela Merkel expects the rate of infection spread to rise as the change in weather means more people will spend time inside in the coming months.

Speaking after a video conference with premiers of the federal states, Merkel said the number of daily infections could rise to 19,200 in three months if the rate of infection continued as it has done over the past three months.
