Europe braces for third wave of Covid as cases surge – BBC News

Continental Europe is preparing for a third wave of coronavirus amid a surge in new cases and a shortage of vaccines that can reduce the spread of the disease.

Large parts of France are going into lockdown again amid a sharp rise in cases. Only 8% of the population has been vaccinated.

Switzerland is extending its restrictions. Poland – where the surge is being driven by the variant from southern England – is going into partial lockdown.

The German chancellor Angela Merkel has said it’s probable that restrictions will have to be reimposed.

The vaccination programme across the EU has been slow with around 10% of the population protected so far. Confidence has been shaken after more than a dozen EU countries suspended the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine for a time over concerns about blood clots.

  1. You can’t blame people for not wanting to take an experimental vaccine that produces blood clots & guidelines about the age group to be taking vaccine are being changed daily.

  2. Big news flash for everyone in the world people die everyday! Honestly this is becoming old news now if you live your life scared of losing someone or dying yourself then you’re not living you’re just existing there’s a massive difference

  3. I’ll be paying attention to none of it everyone open up your businesses and get on with things they can’t control everyone there is no point being alive if you don’t actually live

  4. Don’t be so naive. It’s EU bureaucracy that’s caused the delay in vaccinations!!!!!

  5. I am trying to see World News BBC dated 22 March, but do not see it here at this time. I would like to leave a comment, but not on this story. Thank you

  6. BBC News – have you noticed how many people dislike your constant barrage of fear and propaganda?

  7. Seems like you Brits are way behind.
    I think the morons at CDC said the USA is on the 43 wave.

  8. i am not taking the vaccine, i think i will pass on this one, would prefer to focus on the causes of my underlying health conditions than what big pharma says xD

  9. Don’t they see it’s since they sent kids back to school kmt sick of these politicians
