    BRATISLAVA, Slovakia (AP) — Coronavirus cases in Slovakia hit a daily record despite the country entering a national lockdown last week, the Health Ministry reported Friday. The ministry said Slovakia confirmed 15,278 new cases on Thursday, almost 5,000 more than the previous record set Nov 23. The government ordered a two-week lockdown that started Nov. 25. However, the ministry attributed the size of the most recent daily increase to some test results not getting from labs to the information system on Tuesday; those results were added to Thursday’s tally, it said. Other data confirmed that infections are on the rise in Slovakia. The country registered 61,515 new cases in the last seven days, compared to 57,992 the previous week. Under the lockdown, people are allowed to leave their homes only for specific reasons, and those who are unvaccinated and have not recovered from COVID-19 are required to get tested for the virus to attend work. Slovakia’s parliament is debating a government proposal to pay people 60 and older a 500-euro ($567) bonus if they get vaccinated against...

    GERMANY is being urged to go into lockdown NOW amid spiralling Covid cases as a horrifying fourth wave of the deadly bug strikes Europe. As hospitals become overwhelmed in Holland, the country is bracing for a "Code Black" scenario meaning there would not be enough beds to treat everyone, while the new super strain has emerged in Belgium. 4Covid patients in Germany are being around the country to find intensive care bedsCredit: EPA 4It comes as German authorities are urged to put the country in lockdown as cases spiralCredit: AFP 4 Infection rates are skyrocketing across the continent, causing some nations to plunge populations into lockdowns and impose fresh draconian restrictions.

Slovakia declared a state of emergency and overwhelmed doctors in the Netherlands are said to be days away from having to ration who gets lifesaving treatment. 6Doctors in the Netherlands face having to ration critical care for Covid patientsCredit: Reuters 6 Several nations have imposed new lockdowns or restrictions in an effort to curb skyrocketing infections across the Continent. The surge has been blamed on the relatively low uptake of vaccines compared to the UK and a lag in deciding to give booster jabs. Germany is even considering making vaccines compulsory amid warnings from Angela Merkel the coming winter will be "worse than anything we've seen".

    CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Demonstrators in the Solomon Islands defied government lockdown orders to take to the streets for a second day Thursday in violent protests. Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare had declared the lockdown Wednesday after about 1,000 people gathered in protest in the capital Honiara demanding his resignation over a host of domestic issues, according to local media reports. The protesters breached the National Parliament building and burned the thatched roof of a nearby building, the government said. They also set fire to a police station and other buildings. “They were intent on destroying our nation and … the trust that was slowly building among our people,” the government said in a statement. Sogavare ordered the capital locked down from 7 p.m. Wednesday through 7 p.m. Friday after saying he had “witnessed another sad and unfortunate event aimed at bringing a democratically elected government down.” “I had honestly thought that we had gone past the darkest days in the history of our country,” he said. “However, today’s events are a painful reminder that we have a long way...

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Social distancing became mandatory again across the Netherlands on Wednesday as coronavirus infections soared and the country’s leading intensive care physician called for even tougher measures to rein in the pandemic. The Netherlands is in the midst of a surge that has seen a string of new daily records for numbers of coronavirus infections in recent weeks. The country’s public health institute last week recorded a 39% spike in infections and said hospital and intensive care unit admissions also rose. The head of the national association of intensive care units, Diederik Gommers, appealed Tuesday night for a tough lockdown, including closing schools, something the government has been keen to avoid. He told a committee of lawmakers that the country’s hospitals are 10 days away from being so overburdened with COVID-19 patients that intensive care doctors will have to start making choices about which critically ill patients get care. There are currently around 500 COVID-19 patients in Dutch ICUs, which have an overall capacity of 1,066, according to an organization that distributes patients between hospitals....
    BODIES have been piling up outside overflowing morgues as more countries in Europe have plunged into Covid lockdown. The continent’s fourth wave has now seen Greece join Austria, Germany and the Netherlands in imposing restrictions, while Romanian hospitals buckle under the strain. 3A coffin being taken out of a morgue in Romania 3 The restrictions have seen anti-lockdown mobs set the streets of Brussels ablaze, following demonstrations in Italy, Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Croatia and Denmark. Europe's fourth wave of the pandemic has been blamed on the slow vaccine uptake, the contagious Delta variant and the colder weather forcing people gather indoors again. Harrowing images from Romania show bodies lined up outside the morgue outside Bucharest University Hospital. The morgue has capacity for 15 bodies but needs to deal with 41 corpses as the number of Covid cases surge, CNN reports. Nurse Claudiu Ionita described the unfolding horror as “relentless”. “I never thought, when I started this job, that I would live through something like this,” she said.

    BRUSSELS (AP) — Ten of thousands of people demonstrated through central Brussels on Sunday to protest reinforced COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the Belgian government to counter the latest spike in coronavirus cases. Many among the police estimate of 35,000 at the rally had already left for home when the demonstration descended into violence as several hundred people started pelting police, smashing cars and setting garbage bins ablaze.

    A 15-year-old boy is in custody Wednesday after an incident at Northwood High School, in Silver Spring, Maryland, that led to a shelter-in-place order at that school and a lockdown at an elementary school. In a letter to parents, Principal Jonathan Garrick said school officials got an anonymous tip that the student had brought a gun to school. When the boy was brought to the office, two rounds of ammunition were found on him. The boy then ran off. School officials called the police, Garrick said; Northwood went into a shelter-in-place situation, and Forest Knolls Elementary School, next door, went into lockdown. The boy turned himself in about an hour later, Garrick said, adding that police found a gun in a bush as part of their search, but it’s not known whether it belonged to the boy. His name hasn’t been released, and the police said it’s still being worked out what charges he might face.

    Residents in one Fairfield County town were warned to stay in their homes during an armed standoff with a suspect following a domestic dispute. The incident took place around 8 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 16 in Trumbull. That's when officers were called to a home in the Tashua Road area for a domestic disturbance, said Captain Keith Golding of the Trumbull Police. According to Golding, before police arrived, the suspect fled from the house to an adjacent building on the property armed with a handgun. Police immediately secured the area surrounding the home's property. The Southwest Regional Emergency Response Team was activated and negotiated with the suspect, who peacefully surrendered to officers. A Trumbull Citizen Alert Message was sent to area residents, along with social media alerts telling them there was police activity in their neighborhood and to remain in homes, and lock doors until further notice.  The warning was canceled shortly after midnight when the suspect was taken into custody. No injuries were reported during the incident, which is still under investigation, Golding said. 
    Prime Minister Boris Johnson has refused to rule out a winter lockdown leaving Briton’s facing the prospect of a lonely Christmas yet again. In a press conference from Downing Street on Monday, Mr Johnson warned that there are “storm clouds” of rising coronavirus infections in Europe. “A new wave of coronavirus is steadily sweeping through central Europe and is now affecting our nearest neighbours in Western Europe,” he said per i News. “We cannot rule anything out and the most important thing people can do to prevent NPIs (non-pharmaceutical interventions) from being needed is to get the boosters.” Mr Johnson echoed the veiled threats put forward by government ministers, that lockdown restrictions could be put back into effect if those eligible for the booster shot vaccines — which now includes everyone over the age of forty — do not take their shot. “It would be an utter tragedy after everything we have been through if people who had done the right thing by getting double vaccinated ended up becoming seriously ill or even losing their lives because they allowed their immunity...

    Anger is mounting in Austria as police began carrying out routine checks to stop two million unvaccinated people from leaving their homes in a lockdown which has been slammed for 'dividing the society in two'. The move, which took effect at midnight and applies to more than 20% of the country of 8.9million, prohibits unvaccinated individuals from leaving their homes except for basic activities such as working, grocery shopping - or getting vaccinated.  Police patrols have been stepped up and unvaccinated people can be fined up to 1,450 euros (£1,237) if they violate the lockdown.  Yesterday, protests took place in Vienna with furious anti-lockdown campaigners lashing out at the restrictions.   One 61-year-old anti-vaxxer from Burgenland, told The Telegraph: 'I cannot approve of the division of society into two parts. It is certainly not good for the country. It will have consequences. I am firmly convinced of that,' said Michael, an unemployed 61-year-old anti-vaxxer from Burgenland. Markus, a 40-year-old anti-vaxxer, said: 'Before Covid, fundamental rights were unconditional.   Following the announcement of the lockdown, which will last for ten days before being reviewed, hundreds of...
    (CNN)Imagine running 26 miles. Now imagine running 26 miles every day for 95 consecutive days.That's what one Vermont ultra runner did last year while the world went into lockdown, and it has earned her the female world record for the most consecutive days spent running a marathon distance -- 26.2 miles. Alyssa Clark, a 28-year-old from Burlington, said she finds "the whole thing a bit unbelievable.""I never started the journey of running 95 marathons thinking that I would be a world record-holder," Clark said. "Everyday was a gift and kind of ending up with this, I'm still kind of shocked that it happened and I just feel very grateful for it." After around 25 days of running the marathon distance, Clark learned that the record was 60 consecutive days -- and she decided to attempt to beat that. Clark had been training for ultra races, which are longer than a marathon distance, and she began her marathon quest when those ultra races were canceled. At the time, her husband, who is in the Navy, was stationed in Naples, Italy, in...
    The Austrian government has ordered a nationwide lockdown for unvaccinated people in an effort to slow the spread of Covid-19 in the country. Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg today confirmed that millions of citizens would be placed into lockdown from tomorrow amid a worrying trend in infections.     The move, which will affect about two million people in the country of 8.9million, prohibits unvaccinated individuals from leaving their homes except for basic activities such as working, grocery shopping - or getting vaccinated. It will not apply to children under the age of 12 because they cannot yet officially get vaccinated.  It comes after hundreds of Dutch protestors had a water cannon turned on them by police last night after they objected to the partial return of lockdown introduced by The Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

    British supermarket giant Tesco has released a Christmas advertisement in which Santa avoids being quarantined for the Chinese coronavirus by presenting a vaccine passport. Set to the tune of Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now, the Tesco Christmas ad features a hyper-diverse cast of characters rushing around to make preparations for the Christian holiday. At one point the festivities are interrupted by a “Breaking News” announcement warning that “Santa could be quarantined”, but the crisis is averted and Christmas is saved when Santa Claus presents a vaccine passport to border officials, spurring raucous applause. “This Christmas, nothing’s stopping us,” the advertisement proclaims. Explaining the rationale behind the marketing campaign, Tesco’s Chief Customer Officer, Alessandra Bellini, said that the company’s research found that the British public “won’t let anything stop them” from celebrating Christmas this year. “This got us thinking about all the little things that have the potential to get in our way — from running out of mince pies to running late to a Christmas party — and the nation’s determined spirit that ensures we’ll overcome them all. “We hope our...

    Strict lockdowns pushed by White House advisers Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx failed to stop the vulnerable dying from COVID-19, while families suffered and children lost out on their education, according to a forthcoming book by Trump adviser Dr. Scott Atlas. His is the latest contribution to unpicking how the Trump administration responded to the pandemic. And the former Stanford radiologist offers an unsparing account of dysfunction and political paralysis that allowed Trump's two most high-profile scientific advisers to publicly contradict the president and hijack the response. 'A Plague Upon Our House: My Fight at the Trump White House to Stop COVID from Destroying America,' is published on November 23 by Bombardier. 'People were dying from the virus, and the lockdown policies were not preventing the deaths,' he writes in a copy obtained by DailyMail.com 'The simple logic of assuming you could stop the spread of, and some said eliminate, a highly contagious virus by shutting down society after millions had been infected was worse than nonsensical.  'The idea of stopping all businesses and closing schools while quarantining healthy...
    (CNN)Austria is days away from ordering millions of unvaccinated people to stay at home, its chancellor said Thursday, in a rare move that underscores the increasing exasperation of European leaders towards those who have not yet been inoculated against Covid-19. Alexander Schallenberg told reporters the country's vaccination rate was "shamefully low," and hinted that the measure would be triggered within days. "In other states that rate is a lot higher -- it is shameful as we have enough vaccines available," Schallenberg added.Under the country's plan, which was agreed in September, unvaccinated Austrians will face a stay-at-home order once 30% of intensive-care beds are occupied by Covid-19 patients. The current rate is 21%, according to the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES), and a surge in infections has pushed it up quickly.Unvaccinated people are already excluded from entertainment venues, restaurants, hairdressers and other parts of public life in Austria. If the new measures come into place, the unvaccinated will be ordered to stay home except for a few limited reasons; the rules will be policed by officers carrying out...
    THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Santa won’t be getting his traditional welcome in the Dutch city of Utrecht this year. The ceremonial head of Carnival celebrations in Germany’s Cologne had to bow out because he tested positive for COVID-19. And Austria is considering imposing a lockdown on unvaccinated people. Nearly two years into a global health crisis that has killed more than 5 million people, infections are again sweeping across parts of Western Europe, a region with relatively high vaccination rates and good health care systems but where lockdown measures are largely a thing of the past. The World Health Organization said coronavirus deaths rose by 10% in Europe in the past week, and an agency official declared last week that the continent was “back at the epicenter of the pandemic.” Much of that is being driven by spiraling outbreaks in Russia and Eastern Europe — where vaccination rates tend to be low — but countries in the west such as Germany and Britain recorded some of the highest new case tolls in the world. While nations in Western Europe...
    A report of a gunman on the loose near in New Milford -- which triggered a lockdown of all borough schools Thursday morning -- was unfounded, Police Chief Brian Clancy said. "It was a hunter walking to his car," Clancy said. "He is hunting out of state, not in New Milford. There is absolutely no threat." Borough schools were placed on lockdown and then sheltered in place as police investigated what turned out to be a rumor that a man carrying an assault rifle -- and possibly two -- was seen on Hoffman Avenue near the Berkeley Street Elementary School. Another rumor was that he was a suspect in an armed robbery. All false.

    As Halloween nightmares go, it’s going to take a lot to beat this. Some 34,000 fun-seekers were thrown into lockdown at Shanghai’s Disneyland Sunday night, after a single case of COVID-19 prompted police to blockade the exits and test every single person in the park before allowing them to leave. It’s the latest example of the harsh measures China is taking as it pursues the elusive goal of zero COVID within its borders. Beijing is battling a fresh wave of the deadly contagion that has led to more than 300 confirmed infections in 14 provinces and regions in recent weeks. The snap lockdown at the so-called Happiest Place on Earth saw anxious guests lining up until midnight outside makeshift tents staffed by health workers in hazmat suits, while fireworks exploded joyfully over the park’s centerpiece Enchanted Storybook Castle. China’s official English language media outlet, China Daily, sought to put a positive spin on events by cheerfully describing the scene on Twitter as comprising “Nucleic acid tests under the fireworks!” While such measures would likely be seen as draconian...
