BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's partial lockdown in November will dampen growth in the fourth quarter but a government aid package should cushion the impact, Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said on Thursday.

The aid package to compensate companies for the partial lockdown will likely cost more than an initially planned 10 billion euros (8.98 billion pounds), Scholz added.
