A second lockdown in Germany can and will be avoided, the country’s Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy said Tuesday.

Speaking at a press conference, Peter Altmaier said the worst of the pandemic was behind Germany, and that the country’s economy had improved since May,

But he said the country’s GDP was expected to decline by 5.8% in 2020.

The minister’s comments come as officials in Germany grapple with anti-government protests.

On Saturday thousands marched in Berlin to protest against Covid-19 regulations, with some waving imperialist flags usually associated with the far-right “Reichsbuerger” group.
