BERLIN, May 4 — Germany’s cabinet today passed regulations to ease restrictions on people who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, Justice Minister Christine Lambrecht said.

The regulations, yet to be approved by the lower and upper houses of parliament, could come into effect at the weekend.

Around 8 per cent of Germany’s population has received two doses of the vaccine and more than 28 per cent a first. With the pace of vaccinations picking up and infections falling, the government hopes that lockdown measures in place since November and tightened since then will be lifted soon. — Reuters
