Summary

GENEVA (AP) — Governments across Europe are ratcheting up restrictions to try to beat back a resurgence of the coronavirus that has sent new confirmed infections on the continent to their highest weekly level since the start of the pandemic.The World Health Organization said Tuesday there were more than 700,000 new COVID-19 cases reported in Europe last week, a jump of 34% from the previous week. Private gatherings at homes with more than six people who don’t live together are also discouraged.“Our objective is clear: We must prevent our country from plunging back into a generalized lockdown,” Conte said.Italy reported more than 5,900 people tested positive over the past day and 41 people died, bringing the country’s official COVID-19 death toll to more than 36,200, the second-highest in Europe after Britain.The outbreak has spread to the annual Giro d’Italia, which was thrown into chaos after several top riders withdrew from the cycling race following positive tests for the coronavirus.Italy made masks mandatory outdoors last week, a requirement already in place in Spain, Turkey, India and a few other Asian countries.
