The World Health Organization has warned that coronavirus cases are surging alarmingly in Europe , as a 'very serious situation' unfolds across the continent.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that coronavirus cases are surging alarmingly in Europe , as a 'very serious situation' unfolds across the continent.

As Covid-19 infections spike to record numbers, European governments are imposing strict local measures and weighing up further lockdowns in a bid to halt a second wave of the pandemic. But WHO regional director Hans Kluge said at a Thursday news conference that the increase in cases should serve as a warning of what is to come."Weekly cases have now exceeded those reported when the pandemic first peaked in Europe in March," Kluge said."Last week, the region's weekly tally exceeded 300,000 patients."More than half of European nations have reported an increase of more than 10% in new cases in the past two weeks, Kluge added."Of those, seven countries have seen newly reported cases increase more than two-fold in the same period," he said.Read MoreEurope pushed the limit of how far to reopen. Now it may be too late to prevent a second virus wave"In the spring and early summer we were able to see the impact of strict lockdown measures. Our efforts, our sacrifices, paid off. In June cases hit an all-time low. The September case numbers, however, should serve as a wake-up call for all of us," he said."Although these numbers reflect more comprehensive testing, it also shows alarming rates of transmission across the region."While there was an increase in cases in older age groups, those aged 50 to 79, in the first week of September, Kluge said, the biggest proportion of new cases is still among 25- to 49-year-olds.Countries across the continent have been easing lockdowns and reopening their economies, but governments are now scrambling to avert further outbreaks."This pandemic has taken so much from us," Kluge said, citing the nearly 4.9 million recorded Covid-19 cases in Europe and more than 226,000 deaths."And this tells only part of the story," he said."The impact on our mental health, economies, livelihoods and society has been monumental."New restrictionsIn France, Covid-19 hospitalizations have risen in recent days in large cities such as Paris, Bordeaux and Marseille. Ibiza's 40-year party could finally be overEarlier this year, the first coronavirus wave spiked fast in France, but it was cut short by a strict nationwide lockdown. In total more than 31,000 people died there from the disease, out of more than 443,000 cases, according to Johns Hopkins University (JHU). Now, the number of new infections is rising fast. A record was set over the weekend with more than 10,000 new cases in a single day. The number of clusters has been rising steadily and, most worryingly, nationwide, the number of people in intensive care has risen 25% in the past week. Cases in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain and Italy have also increased.New restrictions were imposed across England this week barring people from meeting socially in groups of more than six, of all ages, indoors or outdoors. Scotland and Wales have also tightened their social distancing rules.From Friday, even stricter measures will apply in the northeast of England amid a"concerning rise" in Covid-19 infection rates there, UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced in Parliament on Thursday.

Trump rally billboard says 'superspreader event this way.' (Literally). - CNN Video

CNN's Erin Burnett discusses President Trump holding rallies with thousands of supports packed together with few masks despite the coronavirus pandemic and the herd immunity proposal Trump is touting.

Sadly, WHO failed to subscribe anything any where in the world over past 7 decades. Down trodden countries countries viz., Sudan, Yemen, Somalia are the same as before. WHO has been a great liability to donor countries without a vision. Population explosion 🖕🏻WHO Yeah I'm not trusting a damn thing they have to say

Imagine that.... getting pretty close to the election..... WHO....LMFAO We are ALL BECOMING POSTIVELY IMMUNED TO IT.., thats good were ALL ALIVE... 🙌🙌 Report condemns swine flu experts' ties to big pharma (2010) Scientists who drew up the key WHO guidelines advising governments to stockpile drugs had previously been paid by drug companies which stood to profit, according to a report out today. CROOKS

Not wearing masks, tourists at beaches, summer parties, bbq's, are why, cases will continue up til we start wising up WHO IS IRRELEVANT Lmao, bull St, stop the lying Oh no😳 The creator has the answers. When humans ask they will see the answer. The ILLUMINATI CONTROLLED MASS COMMUNICATION is selectively picking what you should see and should not see. CDC Director Robert Redfield says healthy people should NOT wear masks. 👇🏻

99+% survival rate. 99.4% survival rate Are you capable of posting *anything* but fearmongering, nonsense? 'SURGING' 'ALARMINGLY' Here's the reality -COVID cases, hospitalizations & deaths ALL DOWN -Vaccine coming very soon -Stock Market is HIGHER than before COVID -10.4 MILLION New jobs -Millions getting back to work

South Africa take note as we move to Level 1 Cases are meaningless. They depend solely on the number of tests. Hospitalizations and deaths stay low. Of course. I'm in Italy and for the love of GOD I didn't understand why in the hell were all these people going on vacation. Like this sh*t was over. What's bad is now we all will have to suffer because of selfish people.

And China laughs 😀😀 Many people in Europe don't understand what happens in time. In the US, they are faster, they understand nothing. 🙄 WHO, UN and CNN are the most waste of space organisations on earth. Remember last month when the CDC admitted 94% of victims had three underlying conditions... Yeah that was awesome

FEAR PANIC FEAR PANIC! God, I can't wait until after the Election so this Election Infection BULLSHIT can finally go away.

Europe on high alert as coronavirus cases rise and targeted lockdowns returnThe number of new daily infections is reaching record highs in some countries. Will this ever end Wait. They are wearing masks to begin with. Maybe the vaccine is a better idea after all. Did CNBC mention the interview with a scientist who worked in the lab where Covid was created ? Of course not and their democrat cohorts on every platform have deleted it. Man made equals sabotage!

As Coronavirus Rebounds, Europe Rejects New LockdownsAs a second wave of coronavirus infections gathers momentum across Europe , the continent’s governments are determined to avoid large-scale lockdowns and instead seek less disruptive ways to live with the new disease. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Benjamin Franklin If R0 is 1 or less than 1, fair enough. Letting hoards of people get sick and die is not the way to make it less disruptive 🙄
