EUROPE is still in the “eye of the storm,” the World Health Organisation warned today as countries began to ease coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
Cases of Covid-19 rose to nearly one million in Europe yesterday, while on Wednesday global figures were over two million. More than 84,000 across the Continent have died from the virus.
Several nations have eased some restrictions in their countries, while others started to draw up plans yesterday to reopen some businesses.
WHO European director Hans Kluge said: “Case numbers across the region continue to climb.
“In the past 10 days, the number of cases reported in Europe has nearly doubled.”
Mr Kluge said that countries must ensure criteria are met before lockdown measures are relaxed.
This includes having evidence showing that transmission is being controlled, outbreak risks are minimised, and that health systems have the capacity to identify, test, trace and isolate cases.
“We remain in the eye of the storm,” he said. “If you cannot ensure these criteria are in place before easing restrictions, I urge you to rethink. There is no fast-track back to normal.”
