New restrictions across Europe as COVID-19 cases rise dramatically

September 18, 2020

Targeted lockdowns and local restrictions are returning to Europe as the region tries to avoid broad economic damage amid a surge in coronavirus cases.

“Weekly cases have now exceeded those reported when the pandemic first peaked in Europe in March,” the WHO’s regional director for Europe Hans Kluge told an online news conference. “Although these numbers reflect more comprehensive testing, it also shows alarming rates of transmission across the region.”

Pubs and restaurants must shut early and household mixing has been limited in northeast England, while social gatherings of more than six people have been banned across the country.

French authorities are meanwhile preparing tighter restrictions in several cities, while Spain’s Madrid has moved to “reduce mobility and contacts” in areas with high infection rates.

Outside Europe, Israel is set to be the first developed country to enforce a second nationwide shutdown, which will begin later this afternoon.
