The Director of the World Health Organization for Europe, Hans Kluge, told an online press conference that the number of Covid cases is on the rise again after more than two months of decline. “Last week, the number of cases is increased by 10% due to an increase in travel, gatherings and easing of restrictions“Said the WHO regional director. Also of concern is the circulation of the Delta variant which by the end of August, according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, will represent 90% of new cases of Covid-19. The risk is that not all the population will be vaccinated by that date. “63% are still waiting for the first dose and the restrictions will be less and less, while travel and gatherings will increase,” the WHO explained again.
