Berlin Mayor Michael Müller suggested in an interview with Radioeins that some citywide coronavirus-related measures may be relaxed – at the earliest – by April 27. But he added, only with certain “requirements and rules.”
Among the fines Berlin officials will impose are up to 500 euros for people failing to keep the minimum 1.5-meter distance from others and up to 10,000 euros for non-exempt businesses that keep their doors open.
