Germany is reporting a second wave of coronavirus cases that may force that nation into yet another shutdown.

Germany's virus reproduction rate - which shows how many people on average are effected by coronavirus - has now shot up to 1.0, the 'dividing line between growth and decline'. 

Germany's strict procedures during the pandemic have seen them handle the disease better than most countries, but Chancellor Angela Merkel said hospitals would be overwhelmed if the rate rises any further, meaning a second lockdown would be 'unavoidable'.

Government officials are set to meet on Thursday to decide the next steps in tackling the virus, with clubs holding their breath in the hope of getting the blessing to resume playing.

Then there was some good news that emerged late Wednesday.

German football has taken another key step towards restarting the Bundesliga next month with the Ministry of Labour the latest body to reportedly approve plans.

"The safety of players, coaches and support staff can be largely ensured if the concept is fully implemented", the ministry's state secretary Bjoern Boehning told the RND media group.

The German Football League (DFL) has drawn up detailed plans for the Bundesliga to resume from May 9. These include games behind closed doors, regular testing of players and strict hygiene measures.

The DFL's plan is "sensible, reduces risks and is therefore acceptable in terms of occupational health and safety," Boehning added.

Christian Seifert, CEO of the German league, has defended the plans to restart.

"I can understand if people are worried about what kind of signal this might send out," Seifert told Frankfurt-based newspaper FAZ.

"However, with our medically-organised concept we can create a framework of which the authorities and politicians can then say 'they are doing their utmost to prevent infection' - that's all we can do."
