Coronavirus: Europe sees record single-day surge in COVID-19 cases

Spain’s government has declared a state of emergency in Madrid so that it can resume partial restrictions on movement there that were struck down by a court.

The government announced the measure after an emergency Cabinet meeting Friday to decide what to do about the Madrid region, which is witnessing one of Europe’s most concerning coronavirus clusters.

Chancellor Angela Merkel is meeting with the mayors of Germany’s largest cities as coronavirus cases rise in metropolitan areas.

Germany’s disease control centre reported 4,516 new cases overnight Friday. Merkel’s meeting by video conference with 11 mayors will discuss slowing the spread of the virus.

Intensive care wards across France are filling up again with COVID-19 patients. Doctors are scrambling to create new ICU beds elsewhere to accommodate the sick.

The COVID-19 patients now occupy 40% of ICU beds in the Paris region, and more than a quarter of ICUs nationwide, after infections among young people spread to vulnerable populations.

Europe bureau chief Crystal Goommansingh talks about the surge in coronavirus cases all over Europe, as well as new restriction measures to be enforced.

    So what's the overall IFR? This is the only number people care about especially with so many false positives in regards to testing. Stop playing games with numbers and just give us the facts.

    There's a virus that governments world-wide don't want spreading more than anything else.
    It's called the Truth.
    This Plan-Demic is a global power grab (Great Reset) propagated by the evil elite such as CCP & other Governments, big pharma, who, united nations, gates foundation, mainstream 'news' propaganda, etc, this list goes on.

    Gates Foundation > World Economic Forum > Great Reset ("Global Economic Reform" ( Centralized Economy/Governance/Technocracy )) … this is ALL an orchestrated ACT funded by Gates Foundation and carried forth to the floor by The United Nations. The UN is funded by Gates Foundation second to the US government.

    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.

    The MSM is the enemy of the people and will answer for knowingly creating and controlling the entire world with fear based on a lie. Goodbye @Global… you and yours will not be missed.

    I do not care about cases!!!! What I care about is the mortality rate and how many people are hospitalized in the intensive care unit!! Cases do not equal to people actually being sick. Stop this fear mongering!

    And no associated deaths otherwise you'd be screaming that instead. Pushing an agenda and passing it off as journalism. There's a word for that. Propaganda.
