Merkel reportedly quarantined herself at home on March 22, after she had contact with her doctor who tested positive for coronavirus.

The doctor was said to have administered a precautionary vaccine against pneumococcal infection on Merkel on March 20.

Steffen Seibert, the chancellor’s spokesman, on March 25 said Merkel’s second coronavirus test also returned negative, following her first test on March 23 that came back negative also. 

He also added that Merkel will undergo another test for the virus next week.

However, Seibert added that the chancellor will continue to perform her official duties while staying at home.

Germany currently has 40,421 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 229 deaths.

The German government has put a ban on public gatherings of more than two people, except for families and those who live together.

Restaurants have been advised to close or only sell takeaway and schools have also been shut down.
