Germany has been praised for the way it has handled the pandemic, and the country's death toll of some 9,300 people is less than one-fourth the amount of people who have died of COVID-19 in Britain. Masks are now required everywhere in public in Paris as authorities warn that infections are growing exponentially just as schools are set to resume classes.

Police ordered demonstrators to break up the march after many participants refused to wear a mask or respect social-distancing rules, police spokeswoman Anja Dierschke said.

The mass protest against pandemic restrictions had been allowed to go ahead after a bitter legal battle.

Local reports said officials put an end to the protest at around midday as participants were ignoring social distancing regulations despite repeated requests to comply.

"Unfortunately, we have no other option", Berlin authorities stated onTwitter "All the measures taken so far have not led to compliance with the conditions".

At a demonstration close to Brandenburg Gate, several thousand were still gathered by early evening, some throwing rocks and bottles.

People attend a protest rally in Berlin, Germany, Saturday, Aug. 29, 2020 against new coronavirus restrictions in Germany.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Friday, ahead of the court ruling, that the right to appeal bans was part of the freedom of assembly.

"We're here to say: we have to be careful!"

"We have to defend our freedoms", student protester Christina Holz said.

Protesters carried a wide range of grievances and banners proclaiming their opposition to vaccinations, face masks and the German government in general.

One called for an "End to medical tyranny"; another read "No to mandatory vaccines" while one man waved a placard declaring "Masks are muzzles".

The protesters were surrounded by police who fined several people 135 euros for not wearing face masks.

Participants wave national flags during a gathering on the 17.

"Covid-19 is not so risky, it mainly kills people over the age of 60".

The pandemic has killed more than 839,000 people worldwide since surfacing in China late previous year, and more than 24.8 million cases have been registered. The United States has recorded the highest number of deaths with 181,779.

Police have turned out in force to monitor if people are wearing masks and practicing social distancing.

France on Friday said there had been an "exponential" rise in coronavirus cases with more than 7,000 new infections in 24 hours.

That did not stop several hundred young party-goers holding an illegal rave in the centre of the country, defying a ban on such events.

Hundreds of people continued to gather at Berlin's iconic Brandenburg Gate on Saturday, in a show of defiance against the police orders, with clashes reported from some parts of the city. "It is still serious. Continue to take it seriously".
