Europe has seen a surge of COVID-19 cases since Europian countries began releasing restrictions pointed at curbing the spread of the potentially fatal coronavirus, the World Health Organization (WHO) said Thursday.
“Last week, Europe saw an increase in weekly cases for the first time in months,” the WHO’s regional director for Europe Hans Kluge informed the reporters.
He said more than two dozen countries in Europe had seen resurgences of the deadly virus.
“Thirty countries have seen increases in new cumulative cases over the past two weeks. In 11 of these countries, an accelerated transmission has led to the very significant resurgence that if left unchecked will push health systems to the brink once again in Europe,” he warned.
Kluge did not identify the countries by name, nor provide detailed numbers.
