Germany to mark 100,000 Covid deaths – BBC News
BBC, 25 Nov 2021
Germany has recorded 100,000 Covid deaths, a number that other western European countries, including the UK and France, passed several months ago.
Europe is at the epicentre of the crisis, according to the World Health Organization.
The death toll already exceeds 1.5 million in the 53 countries it terms as its Europe region.
It warned of "high or extreme stress" in intensive care units in 49 of the nations by March 2022.
Europe is facing a surge in cases, prompting Austria to return to lockdown and others to consider fresh measures.
