REUTERS/Fabrizio BenschBERLIN (Reuters) - Germany reported a record 410 COVID-19 deaths in the last 24 hours, before the 16 federal state leaders and Chancellor Angela Merkel meet on Wednesday to discuss restrictions for the Christmas and New Year holidays. That was 1,072 cases more then the day before but 5,015 less than the record increase reported on Friday. The reported death toll rose by a record 410 to 14,771, the tally showed. A week ago, the toll was at 305 and on Nov. 2, the day Germany introduced a partial lockdown, at 49. “Christmas is a family celebration, New Year’s Eve more a party with friends,” Bavaria state premier Markus Soeder told the ARD broadcaster on Wednesday.

Saxony’s premier Michael Kretschmer warned of a collapse of medical care in the coming weeks. “The situation in the hospitals is worrying... We cannot guarantee medical care at this high level (of infections),” he told MDR radio. The federal states are expected to decide on Wednesday to extend the “lockdown light” until Dec. 20. The government plans to extend financial aid for firms hit by the restrictions, which, according to sources, could add up to 20 billion euros ($23.81 billion) in December to an estimated 10-15 billion euros bill in November. Conservative parliamentary group leader Ralph Brinkhaus urged the federal states to take over part of the costs for the coronavirus measures.

REUTERS/Fabrizio BenschBERLIN (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed with leaders of Germany’s 16 federal states to extend measures against the coronavirus until at least Dec. 20, she said, adding it was very likely that they would remain in place into January. Germany imposed a month-long “lockdown lite” on Nov. 2 to rein in a second wave that is sweeping much of Europe. However, the death toll jumped 410 to 14,771, up from 305 a week ago, and just 49 on Nov. 2, when the partial lockdown came into effect. Under the measures agreed on Wednesday, private gatherings will be limited to five people from Dec. 1. Gatherings of up to 10 people, not counting children, will be allowed over Christmas to let families and friends celebrate together.

REUTERS/Fabrizio Bensch“This is absolutely not the time to sound the all-clear,” she told journalists, after the number of deaths from the virus reached a daily record. Germany imposed a month-long “lockdown lite” on Nov. 2 to rein in a second wave that is sweeping much of Europe. However, the death toll jumped 410 to 14,771, up from 305 a week ago, and just 49 on Nov. 2, when the partial lockdown came into effect. “The exponential growth of infection numbers has been stopped, the steep curve has been turned into a flattened curve,” Merkel said. Financial support for businesses that have had to close under the partial lockdown will be extended into December.

More than 900 Mayo Clinic staff members in the Midwest have been diagnosed with Covid-19 in the past two weeks. A spokesperson for Mayo Clinic told NBC News in an email that the number — only from the nationwide medical system's Minnesota and Wisconsin locations — comprised almost one-third of the 2,981 coronavirus cases among its Midwest staff since the start of the pandemic in March. She added that Mayo Clinic was reducing elective care and redeploying those staff to help with staffing related to Covid-19. “It tells us we’re in a surge.”Williams said the recent Covid-19 outbreak among staff was an example of how transmissible the virus was. “It shows you how easy it is to get COVID-19 in the Midwest,” Williams said.

REUTERS/Gonzalo Fuentes(Reuters) - France on Tuesday became the first European country to surpass 2 million coronavirus cases despite an Oct. 30 nationwide lockdown that has led to a sharp decline in new infections, according to a Reuters tally. France is fourth in the number of infections reported, with 2,036,755, behind the United States, India and Brazil. With a death toll topping 45,000, France ranks seventh in COVID-19 deaths globally. Europe has reported nearly 14.5 million COVID-19 cases so far, making it the worst-affected region in the world and accounting for more than 26% of all infections so far, according to the tally. Despite the fewer daily cases, the number of people hospitalized for COVID-19 has reached an all-time high, and France has the third-highest number of deaths in Europe after the United Kingdom and Italy.

(Reuters) - Europe’s new COVID-19 cases have doubled in five weeks, propelling the region on Sunday across the bleak milestone of 10 million total infections, according to a Reuters tally. REUTERS/Fabrizio Bensch/File PhotoJust last month, both Latin America and Asia reported over 10 million total cases in their regions. The United States alone has over 9 million cases with a rapidly accelerating outbreak.

Russia is the worst-affected Eastern European country with over 1.6 million COVID-19 infections.

BRUSSELS/BERLIN (Reuters) - The World Health Organization (WHO) should be quickly overhauled, get more powers to handle pandemics and expose its member states’ shortfalls in health emergencies, European Union officials said on Friday. REUTERS/Fabrizio Bensch/File PhotoThe comments were made at a video conference of EU health ministers that endorsed an EU document on the reform of the U.N. agency which outlines a series of sweeping changes needed to boost WHO’s powers and resources, as exclusively reported by Reuters in September. “It is extremely important we move ahead with this reform,” EU Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides told the same news conference. “Transparency on who complies with the rules is fundamental,” Kyriakides told ministers at the video conference, according to her speaking notes. The draft document also says WHO countries should allow independent epidemiological assessments on-site in high risk zones during health crises.

Germany and France announced tough new restrictions on businesses Wednesday meant to curb the spread of the coronavirus as the countries respond to worsening outbreaks. Merkel told reporters that the number of Covid-19 patients in intensive care across the country has doubled over the past 10 days. Shops, schools and day cares will remain open, she said, but will face new restrictions on capacity. Germany reported a record spike of 14,964 new cases on Wednesday, according to its disease control agency. European officials have attributed the surge to "pandemic fatigue," as well, meaning that people are tired of strictly adhering to public health measures.
