BERLIN: German Chancellor Angela Merkel has rejected calls to do away with face mask requirement in shops across the country, government spokesperson Steffen Seibert said. "Wherever the minimum distance cannot be guaranteed in public life, masks are an important and, from today's perspective, still indispensable means," Xinhua news agency quoted Seibert as saying on Monday. The wearing of masks is still necessary in order to "keep the number of infections low and to protect other people and ourselves", he added. Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania's Minister for Economic Affairs Harry Glawe has triggered a debate about abolishing the requirement to cover the mouth and nose in shops. (IANS)
