Since November 2, Germany has implemented the incomplete closure order, including the closure of catering facilities. As the number of newly diagnosed cases remains at a high level of 20000 per day, it is not known when the blockade will be lifted. German Chancellor Angela Merkel told the public on the 16th: restricting travel is the secret of success, we have more to do.
In the United States, New York State has required all restaurants to close at 10 p.m. from the 13th. California also introduced emergency restrictions on the 16th, raising the blockade level of 41 counties, which account for 94% of the population, to the highest level.
