Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn warned during a news conference yesterday of a second coronavirus wave if people are not careful.
Spahn added that people should remain vigilant, not overconfident.
His warning came in response to news reports on holidaymakers partying in Mallorca who showed little concern about social distancing rules.
The health minister urged German tourists not to trigger a new Ischgl in Mallorca, referring to the Austrian ski resort that was one of Europe’s first coronavirus hotspots.
Berlin police are investigating whether a fire yesterday in a residential parking garage in Neukölln was arson.
Paramedics treated six people for smoke inhalation while about 50 firefighters battled the blaze in the pre-dawn hours on Monday.
The fire destroyed six cars and smoke carried over into the neighboring building, leaving two apartments uninhabitable, according to public broadcaster rbb.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, although police have not ruled out arson, which has become a persistent problem in Neukölln in the last several months.
