Storyline


The COVID-19 epidemic situation in Europe is continuing to worsen as both confirmed cases and deaths are sharply rising, forcing many countries to impose stricter restrictions.

Britain reported 24,701 COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, bringing the total number of coronavirus cases in the country to 942,275, according to official figures.

At the same time, coronavirus-related deaths in the country rose by 310 on Wednesday to reach 45,675, the data showed.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson now faces increasing pressure to tighten lockdown measures as infections surge across the country.

France on Wednesday recorded 36,437 new COVID-19 infections, 3,020 more than the number registered in the previous 24 hours. The cumulative number of coronavirus cases soared to 1,235,132, including 35,785 deaths, up by 244 in one day, figures released by the Public Health Agency showed.

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.

The president ordered the nation to go back into a national lockdown, like in mid-March, when COVID-19 patients in the first wave of the epidemic overwhelmed hospitals.

For the new lockdown, the only authorized out-of-home trips will be "to go to work, to a medical appointment, to provide assistance, to go shopping or to take the air," said Macron.

The restrictive measures will affect universities, libraries, bars, cafes, restaurants, gyms, etc. Public gatherings are banned and cultural ceremonies and conferences are suspended, according to the president.

Detailed measures of the new lockdown will be announced by the government on Thursday.

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.

If in the next two weeks, people rigorously respect the rules and the health situation improves, the government will review the possibility of re-opening some non-essential businesses, he added.

France was in a national lockdown from March 17 to May 11 to contain the spread of the virus.

Italy's Ministry of Health reported 24,991 new confirmed COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, once again hitting a single-day record high and bringing the total number of infections to 589,766.

The country also reported 205 new deaths related to the deadly virus, with the tally reaching 37,905 as of Wednesday.

There are 276,457 COVID-19 patients that are hospitalized, with 1,536 in severe condition.

The Spanish Health Ministry confirmed on Wednesday that the country registered 9,303 new infections, bringing the tally to 1,136,503.

The past seven days saw 761 new deaths, which took fatalities to 35,466 as of Wednesday.

Also on Wednesday, Germany set single-day record with 14,964 new infections in the past 24 hours. The country's cumulative cases stood at 464,239, including 10,183 deaths.

Germany will announce its latest restrictions, which will start from Nov 2. The country will ban public gatherings that include more than 10 people from over two families and non-essential personal trips. The country will also request closure of cinemas, theaters, concerts, gyms, swimming pools and amusement parks. Pubs and clubs are ordered to shut, with dining services in public restaurants also forbidden.

Russia registered 16,202 new COVID-19 cases over the last 24 hours, down from the all-time daily record of 17,347 reported on Monday, the country's COVID-19 response center said Wednesday.

The country's total caseload has grown to 1,563,976, with 26,935 deaths and 1,171,301 recoveries, the center said in a statement.
