Germany: Dozens rally against coronavirus measures in Berlin

Dozens of protesters gathered in a new round of protests against coronavirus measures in Berlin on Tuesday. There have been demonstrations at the Victory Column for several days in a row. Protesters could be seen gathering with makeshift social distancing contraptions, whilst police officers were deployed on site to set up fences in the area. One protester criticised the government's response to the pandemic and suggested fear was being spread. «Is this what we want our children to learn? That they have to have fear from other people, that they should keep the distance? Because they think something is there. It cannot be that people fear either to go to the police or to go to the hospital or that they can't trust their governments any longer,» he said. Last Saturday, an estimated 38,000 protesters took part in an anti-COVID measures demonstration in the German capital, where at least 300 people were arrested. German Chancellor Angela Merkel originally announced a series of measures in March, in order to curb the spread of coronavirus. The measures have been gradually eased nationwide, however, in the past weeks the number of new infections has significantly increased.
