‘Pandemic Freedom Day’: Thousands protest in Berlin over COVID-19 restrictions


Thousands of people gathered in Berlin on Saturday to protest against restrictions put in place to combat the spread of the new coronavirus.

Titled “The End of the Pandemic – Freedom Day,” the rally was made up of several groups, including right-wing groups, opponents of vaccines, and conspiracy theorists.

Germany, like many other European countries, imposed population restrictions to curb the spread of COVID-19.

According to Johns Hopkins University figures, Germany has had 210,676 cases of the new coronavirus, with 9,153 deaths.
