Germany’s health minister has expressed concern after pictures emerged this weekend


Germany’s health minister has expressed concern after pictures emerged this weekend of hundreds of German tourists flouting social-distancing rules on the island of Majorca.

Jens Spahn said that the coronavirus pandemic was not over, warning German tourists against complacency.

Pictures showing crowds of German tourists partying, many without masks, in the bars and streets of Majorca have angered the Spanish authorities and dismayed the German government.

Thousands of German holidaymakers were allowed to travel to Spain’s Balearic Islands last month as part of a pilot scheme to help reboot the country’s tourism sector.
