(Reuters) - The COVID-19 death toll in Europe is set to pass 300,000, according to a Reuters tally on Tuesday, and authorities fear that despite hopes for a new vaccine, fatalities and infections will continue to rise as the region heads into winter. Slideshow ( 2 images )With just 10% of the world’s population, Europe accounts for almost a quarter of both the 50.7 million cases and 1.2 million deaths globally and even its well-equipped hospitals are feeling the strain. But France, Spain, Italy and Russia have also reported hundreds of deaths a day and together, the five countries account for almost three quarters of the total fatalities. Facing similar pressures, Belgian and Dutch hospitals have been forced to send some severely ill patients to Germany. Deaths have been rising by more than 320 per day over the past three weeks.
