It's the second weekend of May and Berlin is in full swing. Public parks are covered in picnic blankets and sunbathing locals, and the city's much-loved beer gardens are buzzing with people as they gather to drink and socialize in the hot afternoon sun.
Sebastian Wenz, an accountant who lives in the capital, is also there, watching nearby television screens in anticipation as his home soccer team, Hertha BSC, returns to action for the first time since the coronavirus outbreak.
"You wouldn't think that just seven weeks ago, Germany was going through a deadly pandemic," Wenz told Business Insider.
Eight weeks from the height of its coronavirus outbreak, Europe's most populous nation has emerged relatively unscathed compared to the rest of the world.
Germany's successful response to the coronavirus is attributed to key factors including an early lockdown, an extensive testing program, and a functioning healthcare system, Business Insider previously reported.
