Coronavirus impact: Recession in Germany to continue till mid-year, says ministry

The German economy entered a recession in March and the slowdown is expected to continue until the middle of the year, the economy ministry said on Wednesday.

"Collapsing global demand, interruption of supply chains, changes in consumer behaviour and uncertainty among investors are having massive impact on Germany," the ministry said in its monthly report.

It said even if social distancing measures were eased, economic activity would continue to be very subdued and would only pick up gradually.
