Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Ukraine now testing at railway stations as Covid death toll climbs” – below is their description.

Germany has become the latest European country to record a sharp rise in Covid cases which have jumped 70 per cent week-on-week, but advisors say it is to be ‘expected’ as winter arrives. The Netherlands, Belgium, Poland and the UK are among dozens of countries seeing infection rates tick up – but have so-far resisted reimposing lockdowns and are instead urging people to get vaccinated. The only country which has imposed lockdown is Latvia, which went into a month of restrictions earlier this week after its infection rate rose to become the highest on the continent. Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins blamed the spike on the country’s low vaccination rate, with just 57 per cent of people double-jabbed.
