#Coronavirus: #WHO warns of surge of new cases in #Europe

The World Health Organisation (WHO) Europe director has urged caution following a surge in new coronavirus cases and deaths recorded in several European countries in recent weeks.In an online press briefing on Thursday, WHO Regional Europe Director Hans Kluge said that, last week, the region had recorded a spike in both Covid-19 new deaths and cases “for the first time in months.”Kluge, a Belgian national, said that as Europe as a whole reported a decreasing proportion of global cases compared to earlier this year, 30 countries had seen their cumulative cases spike over the past two weeks.“The region continues to report close to 20,000 new cases and over 700 new deaths daily,” he said. The WHO-region “Europe” includes also non-EU countries.
