The head of the European department of the World Health Organization (WHO) Hans Kluge announced the first signs that the increase in the incidence of coronavirus in Europe has resumed. He stated this in his Twitter account.
“After a decline in the incidence of COVID-19 in the region since the beginning of February, the first signs of its resumption have appeared in Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans. The fire has not yet extinguished, “Kluge said.
According to him, four of the ten countries in the world with the highest number of cases of COVID-19 infections in the last 24 hours are located in the European region. In this regard, Kluge announced the need to take measures to prevent the transmission of the virus.
Earlier, the infectious disease specialist Yevgeny Timakov said that the increase in the incidence of coronavirus in Russia will begin in mid-April. The specialist added that if the recommendations for combating coronavirus are not followed, the surge can be very strong. Timakov did not rule out that the British strain of COVID-19 will come to Russia after the period he has named.
