COVID cases in Europe up again after 10 weeks of decline, says WHO

The World Health Organization on Thursday said Covid cases were on the rise again in Europe after two months of decline and warned a new wave would come "unless we remain disciplined."

WHO's regional director for Europe Hans Kluge told a press conference, "Last week, the number of cases rose by 10 percent, driven by increased mixing, travel, gatherings and easing of social restrictions".

Kluge further added, "if people decide to travel and gather, they should assess the risks carefully and do it safely". "Keeping all life-saving reflexes of masks and self-protections especially indoor and in crowd", he said.

Meanwhile, Scientists have urged the UK to expand its official list of COVID symptoms to reduce the number of missed cases. This will also help in people knowing if they should self isolate.
