German health minister: No back to normal for now

BERLIN (Reuters) - The still high COVID-19 infection numbers do not allow a back to normal for now, German Health Minister Jens Spahn said on Wednesday.

Following Wednesday's approval of a coronavirus vaccine developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca in Britain, Spahn said he expects a "thorough and rapid processing of a corresponding European Union application by the European authorities."
