French New Virus Cases Top 13,000 as Europe Lockdown Risk Rises

Noble Horvath

(Bloomberg) — France’s daily coronavirus cases surged the most since the end of lockdown in May and Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the U.K. is experiencing “a second wave,” as Europe’s infections raise the specter of the kind of large-scale curbs that crippled the economy in the second quarter.

The Madrid regional government said Friday it will test 1 million people — about every seventh resident of the Spanish capital region — for Covid-19 over the next week to stem the surge in cases. U.K. cabinet members declined to rule out a short national lockdown.

The jump in French infections by more than 13,000 on Friday was the most eye-catching figure among increases in Europe. Deaths in France increased by 123, the most for any day since May 18. Cases in Germany rose by 2,000, the most since late April. Spain’s new infections slowed, but still rose by more than

Discovery consolidates top management, BBC launches virtual MIPCOM showcase, Korean factual producer Buzz rebrands as UniK, Audible commissions “High Strangeness,” Jed Mercurio’s “Bloodlands” scores pre-sales, and Neil Gaiman’s “The Ocean at the End of the Lane” gets postponed to 2021.

Discovery has streamlined leadership roles across its Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) operations.

James Gibbons’ role will now encompass the Nordic markets in addition to the U.K., and he becomes GM U.K. and Nordics. The Nordic markets are being unified under the leadership of Nicklas Norrby, and he will now report directly into Gibbons. Benelux will be unified with Germany under the leadership of GM Germany and Benelux Susanne Aigner, while Spain and France are clubbed together under the leadership of GM Iberia and France, Antonio Ruiz. Jamie Cooke will take on a new combined role for Russia, CEEMCA, MEA and PayTV, and will

Did Europe Make a Mistake Reopening Its Borders?

Noble Horvath

(Bloomberg Opinion) — Was is it all for nothing? With Spain, France and Germany recording the highest number of virus cases since they emerged from lockdown, the danger that Europe blows its best chance of taming the coronavirus grows by the day.

The hope was that we could relax travel and social restrictions this summer because people are much less likely to catch the virus when they’re outside enjoying the warm weather. European economies depend on tourism and couldn’t afford a season of empty sun loungers and restaurants. Airlines and hotels would collapse without new bookings, and they implemented new hygiene measures to reassure customers. People were desperate to see friends and families again.

The experiment has backfired. We’re not even through August and cases are surging in western Europe, while south-eastern Europe, which avoided the worst of the initial virus wave, is up against it too. Germany won

Locals rediscover streets and beaches in resorts absent of foreign tourists | Europe

Noble Horvath

It is usually the domain of hangover-nursing sunbathers and rowdy tourists getting an early start on beach parties. But this year – as quarantines, restrictions and advisories take a toll on travel – the white sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters of Magaluf on the Spanish holiday island of Mallorca have some new visitors: Mallorcans.

“This is the first time we’ve ever come – Mallorcans do not come to Magaluf,” laughed Laura, 31, as she settled in for a day on the beach with her friends. “We came this year only because we knew there were no tourists.”

It’s a scene playing out across Europe as locals reclaim sites ceded long ago to throngs of tourists. Plazas once filled with the sounds of suitcases rattling over cobblestones now ring with children’s voices, while near-vacant landmarks offer locals an intimate experience of the top sights in their backyards.

Softball Europe has invited National Federations to bid for its remaining events from 2021 through to 2023, with the deadline for submissions coming in November.

The continental body said the organisers of events cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19 had been given the option to organise the same events in either 2021 or 2022.

Gabriel Waage, the Softball Europe President, confirmed all of the hosts accepted this offer.

Waage hopes more countries will now come forward to bid for the remaining events.

“I am happy to inform you that all of the organisers accepted this offer and we have allocated almost all of our events in 2021,” Waage said.

“There are a few European Championships in 2022 and 2023 which are not allocated.

“Let me call for organisers of those events.”

Noble Horvath

Published on Friday, September 18, 2020

Twenty five tourism bodies and unions across Europe have joined forces to call for testing to replace quarantine restrictions to save the livelihoods of 27 million working in travel.

In an open letter to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, the groups – which represent over 5,000 member companies and their workers – say a continued lack of co-ordination and diverging travel restrictions as crippling their business.

The letter is signed by representatives from across the tourism and travel sector and their workers, including airlines, airports, railways, ground handlers, caterers, travel retailers, air navigation service providers, tour operators, hotels, restaurants, cafes, travel agents, road transport operators and logistics services, camp sites, holiday parks, taxi operators, tourism boards and authorities and all their associated supply chains.

Thomas Reynaert, Managing Director of Airlines for Europe (A4E), said: “With an estimated 55% fewer flights, an overall

The Latest: WHO’s director in Europe urges nations to keep up quarantines

Noble Horvath

The latest on the coronavirus pandemic from around the U.S. and the world.

GENEVA — The World Health Organization’s European director warned national governments Thursday against reducing the quarantine period for people potentially exposed to the coronavirus, even as he acknowledged that COVID-19 “fatigue” was setting in with growing public resistance to the measures needed to control the pandemic.

Dr. Hans Kluge said that “even a slight reduction in the length of the quarantine” could have a significant effect on the spread of the virus which returned to “alarming rates of transmission” in Europe this month.

Kluge insisted that countries should only reduce the standard two-week quarantine period if it was scientifically justified. He offered to convene scientific discussions on the issue, if necessary.

WHO Europe’s 53-country region recorded more than 300,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in the last week, and more than half of the countries reported a rise of
