The World Health Organisation warned Tuesday that Europe could see up to 700,000 coronavirus deaths this winter unless rising infection rates on the continent are curbed.

Hospitals and intensive care units across Europe are approaching capacity, including in the German capital Berlin, where authorities tightened restrictions for access to public spaces for the unvaccinated.

The senate of the city-state of Berlin, where the cumulative incidence in seven days amounted to 349 infections per 100,000 inhabitants, decided to reinforce the 2G (vaccinated, recovered) regulation that is already in force.EFE
