Germany’s infectious disease institute attacked

GERMANY’S “Robert Koch Institute for Infectious Diseases” was attacked as part of an arson attempt on the facility overnight on Saturday, October 24.

According to a report from the Berlin police, the building, which advises the German government on public health measures to stem the coronavirus pandemic, was attacked by several assailants causing damage to one of the windows before security guards arrived on the scene.

The guards witnessed the attackers throw bottle-based incendiary devices at the building, which caused mild damage.
