WHO WARNS RESURGENCE OF COVID-19 ACROSS EUROPE
The World Health Organization warned of a resurgence of COVID-19 across Europe but said that transmission could be contained by local measures rather than national lockdown.
WHO Regional Director for Europe Hans Kluge said the number of COVID-19 cases has increased by more than 10 percent in the past two weeks in more than half the countries in Europe.
“We have a very serious situation unfolding before us. Weekly cases have now exceeded those reported when the pandemic first peaked in Europe in March,” Kluge said.
“Although these numbers reflect more comprehensive testing, they also show alarming rates of transmission,” he added.
