Breaking: Europe On Red Alert as Daily Covid Cases DOUBLE to 200,000 in 10 days

Spain was first in Western Europe to reach 1m cases with France, Germany, Italy, Austria and others setting daily records in recent days.

EUROPE’S reported coronavirus cases more than doubled in 10 days, crossing 200,000 daily infections for the first time on Thursday. Many southern European countries also reported their highest single-day cases this week. Europe has so far reported around 7.8 million total coronavirus cases and about 247,000 deaths.

As a region, Europe is reporting more daily cases than India, Brazil and the United States combined. The increase is partly explained by far more testing than was done in the first wave of the pandemic earlier this year.

As of today, Europe accounts for nearly 19 per cent of global cases and about 22 per cent of global deaths, according to the latest reports. In Western Europe, France, which is reporting the highest seven-day average of new cases in Europe with 25,480 infections per day, reported an all-time high of 41,622 new confirmed Covid-19 cases on Thursday, according to French health authorities.
