Berlin (dpa) - Just more than half of Germans would like the current restrictions put in place to control the spread of the novel coronavirus to remain in effect, according to the results of a new poll.

Of those polled, 56 per cent said they were sceptical of plans to lift the measures, which have kept Germans from congregating in groups and kept many businesses shuttered, although certain areas of public life have gradually reopened in recent weeks. Forty per cent said they would like to see a further loosening of the guidelines in the coming weeks. Three per cent say they "did not know," while 1 per cent gave no response.
