World Health Organisation (WHO) Regional director for Europe, Hans Kluge, said Europe has seen a surge of COVID-19 cases since countries began easing lockdown restrictions. He put 30 countries alert after they saw a rise in cases of the invisible killer disease.
He said: “Last week, Europe saw an increase in weekly cases for the first time in months.
“Thirty countries have seen increases in new cumulative cases over the past two weeks.
“In 11 of these countries, accelerated transmission has led to very significant resurgence that if left unchecked will push health systems to the brink once again in Europe.”
More than 9.47 million people have been reported to be infected by the coronavirus globally and 482,389 have died, according to a Reuters tally as of 10am today.
