Storyline


Italy, Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic all registered new record numbers of daily COVID-19 infections on Wednesday, as Europe continues to experience a resurgence of coronavirus cases.

Italy, once the epicenter of the pandemic in Europe, saw 24,991 new coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours, bringing the country's caseload to 589,766, according to the country’s Health Ministry on Wednesday.

The country also registered 205 new deaths, bringing Italy's death toll to 37,905.

Meanwhile, Germany reported 14,964 new infections over the past 24 hours, taking the national total of coronavirus cases to 464,239, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) said Wednesday.

The death toll in the country rose by 85 to 10,183, according to the RKI.

German Health Minister Jens Spahn, who tested positive for the coronavirus last week, told local broadcaster SWR on Wednesday that it was better to break the COVID-19 wave now. "When the intensive care units are full, it is too late,” he said.

The number of COVID-19 patients in need of intensive care treatment in Germany has more than doubled in the past two weeks to 1,470 patients on Tuesday, according to the latest daily situation report by the RKI.

It's all about a "joint effort" in November to reduce the number of personal contacts, Spahn said in a run-up to the meeting of German Chancellor Angela Merkel with the minister presidents of the federal states on Wednesday to discuss tougher COVID-19 measures to counteract the spread of the virus.

The Czech Republic saw 15,663 new cases on Tuesday, according to data released by the country's Health Ministry on Wednesday.

The country now has a total of 284,033 infections, and 2,547 deaths from COVID-19.

With the pandemic not slowing down despite a series of containment measures implemented this month, the government has purposed to extend the coronavirus-related state of emergency for another month, which the parliament will vote on on Friday.

A night curfew from 21:00 to 04:59 across the country also went into effect on Wednesday to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition, retail sales will be prohibited all day on Sundays and on other days from 20:00 to 05:00, with the exception of gas stations and pharmacies.

In Poland, 18,820 new infections were confirmed in the past 24 hours, bringing the national total to 299,049, reported the Polish Ministry of Health.

With 236 more deaths reported in the same period, the country now has a death toll of 4,851 from COVID-19.

Meanwhile the UK's total COVID-19 cases were up by 24,701 in 24 hours as of 16:00 Wednesday, according to its Department of Health and Social Care. The country also registered 310 more deaths from coronavirus.

A total 59,235 people have now died in the UK due to COVID-19, while 942,275 cases of the disease have been registered to date.

France saw 36,437 new COVID-19 cases and 244 deaths from COVID-19 in a 24-hour span as of 14:00 local time on Wednesday, according to the country's Public Health Agency. The total number of infections in the country has risen to 1,235,132, while the overall death toll from COVID-19 climbed to 35,785.

Coronavirus infections have surged in France in recent weeks, particularly among young people, prompting the government to order the mandatory wearing of face masks outdoors and in workplaces.

France will go into national lockdown starting from Friday to stem the second wave of the coronavirus epidemic, President Emmanuel Macron announced on Wednesday evening.

Starting from Thursday midnight, the measures will be applied nationwide until at least early December. The government will meet in two weeks to consult on whether adjustments are necessary, Macron said.

Europe's airports are also facing a dire situation because of the impacts of COVID-19. The Airports Council International Europe on Tuesday warned that an estimated 193 airports may face insolvency in the coming months if passenger traffic does not start to recover by the end of the year.
