Bundestag To Pass Modifications To Legal Framework For Coronavirus Restrictions

BERLIN, GERMANY - NOVEMBER 18: (EDITOR´S NOTE: SLOMO) Demonstrators holding signs saying "The Stasi is alive" and "Corona, the biggest fraud since Versailles" protest next to the Reichstag against modifications to a law called the "infection protection law" ("Infektionsschutzgesetz") prior to a vote on the law in the Bundestag during the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic on November 18, 2020 in Berlin, Germany. The law is meant to create a new legal framework for restrictions and other measures related to the spread of the pandemic, including such topics as the wearing of protective face masks, the temporary closing of restaurants and bars, limits on personal contact with others, vaccinations and also compensation for time spent in quarantine. Germany is currently under a four-week semi-lockdown meant to rein in recent record rates of infection. (Footage by Christian Ender/Getty Images)
