Pockets of unrest are spreading across Europe as governments return to strict measures like lockdowns to reverse the latest coronavirus wave.
New infections are at record levels and some countries, including Germany, the Czech Republic and Greece, are clamping down on the unvaccinated as health services are pushed to the limit. Austria has gone further, with a nationwide lockdown to start Monday.
Violent demonstrations broke out in Rotterdam Friday night over the Netherlands’ virus restrictions. Police fired warning shots and broke up the crowd with a water cannon. At least seven injuries were reported.
The Dutch government has proposed excluding negative tests from the national health pass, allowing only vaccination or recovery from infection.
The state of Saxony in eastern Germany, one of the nation’s worst hit by the current wave of infections, announced tighter curbs on public life late on Friday. Christmas markets were canceled and people who aren’t vaccinated face a curfew in hotspot areas. Bavaria has also set a mixture of lockdowns and curfews.
Austria has taken the most drastic step so far, announcing the country’s fourth lockdown since the start of the pandemic. Most stores, restaurants, sporting venues and cultural institutions will be closed for an initial three weeks.
Thousands plan to descend on Vienna on Saturday to protest the measures, which also include a vaccine mandate to start in February to participate in various parts of public life.
Austria’s domestic intelligence service has warned that protesters may attempt to enter hospitals after calls for “action” in anti-vaccine social media groups.
Viennese police urged demonstrators to stay at home, warning that more than 1,300 officers would be on the streets.
Austria’s populist Freedom Party has been promoting Saturday’s rally for days. The demonstrations were planned after the government introduced measures targeted at the non-vaccinated — steps that have now been extended to all residents.
Austria’s daily Covid-19 cases have spiked this month to record levels, and deaths, while not rising as much, are the highest since last winter. Salzburg and Upper Austria currently have the highest 7-day Covid incidence in Europe, according to the World Health Organization.
Lothar Wieler, the head of the Germany’s public health institute, RKI, told the DPA newswire that contacts between citizens need to be rapidly reduced across the whole country to stem the surge of infections. He also urged a massive ramp-up in vaccinations.
About 68% of Germans and 65% of Austrians have been fully inoculated against Covid-19, below levels thought to create “herd immunity” from the virus. They lag neighbors like France and Italy, but vaccination levels in Eastern Europe are even far lower — from 59% in the Czech Republic to 24% in Bulgaria.
Hospitals and intensive care units in much of Europe are filling up, largely with the unvaccinated. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday that the country faces a “dramatic situation.”
In Greece, almost nine out of every 10 patients in ICUs are unvaccinated, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in a nationally televised address. It’s a pattern that’s been repeated in recent months, from Italy to the U.S. to Australia.

New Warzone Caldera Pacific Map Release Date Revealed
The end of Verdansk is edging closer and closer, and although we’ll be sad to finally say goodbye to the classic Warzone map, it also means the release date for the new Caldera Pacific Map is right around the corner.
Call of Duty: Vanguard was released worldwide on November 5th but to the disappointment of many, the anticipated Warzone integration wasn’t quite ready to release alongside the new instalment.
Things got even worse when the release of Season One and Warzone Pacific was then delayed from its original December 2nd date. But, we’re hopeful that the new Warzone map was worth the wait.
As we edge closer and closer to the arrival of Caldera and Vanguard Season One, fans will be eager to know the exact release date. Here’s everything you need to know.

The official release date for the new Warzone Caldera Map is Thursday, December 9th, 2021. However, players who own a copy of Call of Duty: Vanguard can get 24-hour early access to Warzone Pacific, meaning the early access release date will be Wednesday, December 8th, 2021.
As well as a brand new map for Warzone players to jump into, December 8th will also mark the beginning of Call of Duty: Vanguard Season One. The new season will include a brand new Battle Pass, Multiplayer Maps, Zombies Content, and more.
Players will be able to progress through the Season One Battle Pass in both Vanguard and Warzone, so don’t worry if you don’t own Call of Duty: Vanguard, you’ll still be able to join in on the action.

Will Verdansk Still Be Playable In Call of Duty: Warzone?
Unfortunately, as a new era of Warzone is set to begin on December 8th, it means the previous era must come to an end. When Caldera debuts in Warzone this December, Verdansk will no longer be playable.
Thankfully, the roadmap for Season One has indicated that the popular Rebirth Island map will still be playable though.
Warzone Pacific will feature two separate modes, one mode will feature weapons from Modern Warfare, Black Ops Cold War, and Vanguard on the new Caldera Map. Whilst the second mode will be Vanguard weapons only on the new map.
