Infections surge in Germany and Spain
In Europe, Germany and Spain have both experienced renewed COVID-19 outbreaks as countries across Europe struggle with border control and economic issues. Germany has seen more than 1,200 new cases in the past 24 hours, likely due to people returning from summer vacations after borders reopened.
