    In March, Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel announced a series of restrictive measures to fight the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, although these have been gradually eased nationwide since then.

    Live from Dusseldorf on Sunday as people have gathered to take part in a rally against restrictive coronavirus measures. Several counter-protests are expected. The rally is organised by regional groups of the corona-sceptic “Querdenken”.

    Last week, a similar protest was held in another German city, Munich.
