WHO Rings Alarm Bells : Whole World is Going Through a Dangerous Phase Of Corona, Fear Of Second Wave in Europe
New Delhi : The World Health Organization (WHO) has once again warned that the world is currently undergoing another dangerous phase of the corona epidemic and that Europe is under threat of another round of corona epidemic. The regional office rang alarm bells over new cases of Corona in Eastern European countries, saying it was concerned about it. The world is currently going through the most dangerous phase of the Coronavirus. Cases are increasing very rapidly. One and a half million new cases were reported on Thursday, with nearly half of them occurring in the American continent. “The virus is still spreading rapidly, which is very dangerous,” said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director general of WHO, via video conferencing from WHO headquarters.
He said that a large number of new cases are coming in South and West Asia as well as America. Ghebreyesus has requested people to maintain social distance and to be extremely vigilant to avoid infection, although other European countries have reported a decrease in infection rates over the past several weeks. In view of this, Britain has reduced the level of alerts issued on the coronavirus. Whereas in Germany, the biggest jump in new cases has been recorded after one month. Italy, Spain, Germany, France and Britain were the most affected by the Corona epidemic in Europe. However, now a decline in new cases is being seen in these countries.
During a virtual meeting in Copenhagen, WHO’s Regional Director for Europe Hans Kluge said, ‘COVID-19 is in a very active phase in many countries. Its high risk in all countries remains. Here, the level of Corona Alert was reduced from four in the UK to three on Friday. British Health Minister Matt Hancock said, ‘Reducing the level of alerts is a major moment for the country. The rate of infection is decreasing at a fast pace. So far, more than three million cases of corona were found in Britain and more than 42 thousand died. Germany’s Center for Disease Control said on Friday that the country had the highest number of new cases of infection in one day after May 20. 770 new cases were found in the last 24 hours. The total number of infected people has increased to over one lakh 90 thousand.’
