European countries brutally increased Covid measures – WHO  

According to a recent think-tank analysis, the Covid-19 epidemic gives chances for Africa’s economic transformation through innovation, digitization, and regional collaboration, but governments require legislation to achieve this.  

The World Health Organization warned Tuesday that some European nations, including Germany, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom, withdrew their Covid restrictions too brutally and are now experiencing an increase in cases, possibly owing to the more transmissible BA2 form.  

Hans Kluge, WHO Europe director, said he was optimistic but attentive about the pandemic’s progress in Europe at a news conference in Moldova.  

According to him, Covid is on the increase in 18 of the 53 nations in the WHO European region.   

“The countries where we see a particular increase are the United Kingdom, Ireland, Greece, Cyprus, France, Italy and Germany.”  

According to him, the major cause of the rise was most likely the BA2 variety, which is more transmissible but not more harmful than other forms. 

“But in addition, those countries are lifting the restrictions brutally from too much to too few,” he said.  

The number of new Covid cases in Europe fell sharply after a peak at the end of January, according to the WHO database, but has begun to rise again since early March. 

Over the past seven days, more than 5.1 million new cases and 12,496 deaths have been reported in the WHO’s European region.  

That brings the number of cases since the start of the pandemic to almost 194.4 million and the number of deaths to more than 1.92 million.
