COVID News Latest: Boris Johnson Tells Downing Street News Conference Plan B Restrictions Will Continue For Longer

Another 164,000 infections have been reported in Germany - a daily record.

It comes as politicians there are holding a parliamentary debate on whether to bring in compulsory vaccination.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz backs the idea but has told lawmakers to vote according to conscience. 

The three key proposals include requiring all adults to be vaccinated, or just over-50s, or merely requiring the unvaccinated to get counselling. 

A draft law should be ready for a vote by March. 

Protesters in Berlin gathered near the Reichstag to oppose mandatory vaccination.

They say it's against the second article of the constitution, which guarantees citizens control over their own bodies. 

Meanwhile, as cases surge in Germany, France also reported very high case numbers - with 428,008 new infections announced on Wednesday.

Yesterday, it posted a record 501,635 - the first time it had topped half a million.
