The World Health Organisation
says there has been a “further acceleration”
in the speed of
Europe, which was responsible for about half of the globe’s new cases reported last week.
The UN health agency said
in a weekly report published late Tuesday that European countries also recorded a 46% increase
in deaths compared with the previous week. Although deaths also rose
in the Americas, the rate of increase there was only 2%.
Europe, France, Italy and the UK reported the highest numbers of new cases while Andorra, the Czech Republic and Belgium reported the highest rate per capita.
