The metro in the capital New Delhi began reopening on Monday after a five-month shutdown and 12 other cities restarted subway services."For our lives to move on, we have to get out of our homes... so this is a good move by the government," passenger Deepak Kumar, who took the Delhi subway to work, told AFP.Authorities imposed strict rules on the trains, with masks, social distancing and temperature checks mandatory.During peak hour in New Delhi on Monday morning, carriages were sparsely filled as people followed guidelines dictating that only alternate seats could be occupied.- New European spikes - For total deaths worldwide, the United States has the most with more than 188,000, followed by Brazil with 126,000. India is next with about 71,000 fatalities.Britain, one of the worst-hit countries at the start of the pandemic, is also battling another spike.The number of daily cases hit nearly 3,000 on Sunday, a level not seen since late May, according to health ministry figures.Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the latest sufferers were predominantly young people."It's important that people don’t allow this illness to infect their grandparents and to lead to the sort of problems that we saw earlier in the year," he said.The British government said it would tighten local restrictions in areas showing sharp rises in cases, rather than impose a second national lockdown, for fear of its impacts on the economy.In France authorities placed seven more regions covering several major cities on high alert Sunday.The curbs came after France reported a record of nearly 9,000 daily cases on Friday. In Paris masks are now mandatory in all public spaces.Lockdowns have also been imposed or extended in Israel and Australia in recent days.Israel decided Sunday to begin "a nightly closure" of 40 cities and towns with the highest infection rates.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said "educational institutions" would be closed and gatherings limited from Monday."I know these limitations are not easy, but in the current situation, there's no way to avoid them," Netanyahu said.According to data collected by AFP, Israel has risen to fifth in the world for the number of infections per capita, ahead of Brazil and the United States.In Spain, the government is trying to restart schools even as it records the highest number of new infections on the European continent.Some Spanish parents are refusing to send their children back to class for the new school year despite the threat of sanctions from authorities."Going back to school is being treated like an experiment, we're like guinea pigs," said Aroa Miranda, a 37-year-old mother-of-two in the coastal town of Castellon de la Plana."For my eight-year-old, I will pretend he's ill so I don't have to send him to school."On the sporting front, International Olympic Committee vice president John Coates offered a stoic note of hope, saying the Tokyo Games would go ahead next year regardless of the pandemic."These will be the Games that conquered Covid, the light at the end of the tunnel," Coates told AFP in an exclusive interview.burs-kma/axn -------------------------------------------------------------
