  • Outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel described the far-reaching measures as an act of "national solidarity". 
  • Vaccinations could be made mandatory by February, the chancellor added.
  • Germany's 4th wave of COVID is its most severe so far, with another 388 deaths recorded in the past 24 hours.
