On Wednesday, the World Health Organization reported that Europe is the only world region where COVID-19 infections and fatalities are increasing. The health agency said there were roughly 3.1 million new cases globally in the week of November 1 to November 7, 2021. This is close to a one per cent increase from the previous week, and Europe accounts for almost two-thirds of the infections.
In that specific week, Europe reported around 1.9 million cases which is a seven per cent increase for the continent. It has been six consecutive weeks that the virus has steadily risen in Europe. WHO considers 61 countries to be part of Europe and they said 42 per cent of them saw a 10 per cent increase in the last week.
The director of WHO’S Europe, Dr. Hans Kluge explained that Europe is “back at the epicentre of the pandemic.” He then warned that if no more actions are taken to prevent the spread, the region could see a lot more cases.
