WHO ALARMED OVER EUROPE TRANSMISSIONS
The World Health Organization warned of a resurgence of the coronavirus across Europe, but said that transmission could be contained by local measures rather than national lockdowns, according to The New York Times.
“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,” Hans Kluge, the W.H.O.’s regional director for Europe, said on Thursday.
The number of cases has increased by more than 10 percent in the past two weeks in more than half the countries of Europe. In seven countries, the number of cases has doubled.
“Although these numbers reflect more comprehensive testing, they also show alarming rates of transmission,” he said. The region has recorded at least 220,000 deaths from the virus.
