New York state ordered bars and restaurants with liquor licenses to close at 10 p.m. as officials in the pandemic’s original U.S. epicenter struggle to prevent a second wave. California’s positivity rate climbed to a two-month high, while hospitalizations across the U.S. rose to a record.

A deadly resurgence continued in Europe, with the U.K. becoming the first country in the region to surpass 50,000 deaths. Germany reported its highest daily fatalities since mid-April, and a state premier warned that Christmas markets and religious services may be in jeopardy with the current rate of infection.
