New corona infections: WHO warns of trend in Europe

The number of corona cases thus confirms the trend that the World Health Organization (WHO) is warning of. In its weekly pandemic report on Wednesday (November 10th, 2021), the WHO reported that around 3.1 million new cases had occurred worldwide. 1.9 million infections occurred in Europe, which is almost two-thirds of the world’s cases.

In Europe, there is a contrasting trend towards global development: New corona infections are declining in all regions – except in Europe, reported the editorial network Germany, citing the WHO report. Hans Kluge, WHO Director for Europe, warned in view of the rising number of cases of up to 500,000 more deaths by February if no measures are taken to stop Corona.

“We have to do everything we can to break this dynamic. Otherwise it will be a bitter December for the whole country. “
