The World Health Organization has warned about the risk to the health systems of these eleven countries, where “accelerated spread has led to a significant outbreak” of coronavirus. This was stated by the head of the World Health Organization in Europe, Dr. Hans Kluge, reports the BBC.
For several weeks he spoke of the risk of an outbreak, as countries began to adjust their quarantine measures: “In some European countries this risk has become a reality – in 30 countries the number of new cases has increased over the past two weeks. In 11 of them, the accelerated spread has led to a significant outbreak, which, if not stopped, will again put healthcare systems on the brink, “Kluge said.
However, WHO expects stabilization in most countries during the summer.
“But we really have to prepare for the fall, when COVID-19 can face seasonal flu, pneumonia and other diseases, because in the end the virus is still actively circulating, and there is no effective treatment yet, no effective vaccine,” the representative said WHO.
