German Chancellor Angela Merkel has defended the latest round of coronavirus restrictions as the country prepares to go back into lockdown -albeit a limited one. Addressing the Bundestag, Merkel said it was currently impossible to trace the origin of all the new infections, hampering efforts to contain the virus. But she faced frequent interruptions during her speech and the opposition have called the measures excessive and inappropriate.
France will be seeing a much stricter lockdown. President Emmanuel Macron has been laying out new guidelines for Germany's neighbor. Shops, bars and restaurants will be closed. Travel between French regions will no longer be possible. Macron announced the restrictions a day after France reported 500 deaths in 24 hours.
In Spain, COVID-19 deaths have hit their highest number since May. Authorities have imposed lockdowns and curfews in response. But not everyone is following the guidelines - especially young people. DW's Jan Philipp-Scholz reports from Madrid.
The pandemic has affected all walks of life in Europe. For young people, it's changing the meaning of, well, youth. Parties are mainly out, meetings with friends are strictly regulated, sports tournaments and class trips - cancelled. Here's a closer look at the how the pandemic is reshaping life, for Europe's young.
Australia's state of Victoria has reported just one new coronavirus infection in the last 24-hour period, a day after a four-month lockdown was lifted in the state capital Melbourne. The city has been the epicenter of the pandemic in Australia. The shutdown has been one of the world's longest -- and some took the opportunity to celebrate their new freedoms in one of Melbourne's bars. Some restrictions are still in place though -- a travel limit of 25 kilometers is still in effect for people in the city and masks must still be worn outdoors.
India has now passed eight million confirmed cases. It's the second-highest number after the United States, but India has one of the world's lowest death rates.
Iran has reported a record death toll for a second straight day. It's the worst-hit country in the Middle East.
And Taiwan has passed 200 days without any dometic transmissions of COVID-19. Officials are hailing the achievement as a success story.
