Countries across Europe are seeing a resurgence of Covid-19. England, Germany, Portugal and Italy have seen a record surge in cases. Germany, once lauded for its handling of the pandemic, has recorded its highest number of cases this week than it ever did during the first seven months of the pandemic. As temperatures dip across the US, the country which remains the worst-affected by Covid-19, recorded most daily infections in two months taking the tally to 8 million.
