The World Health Organization (WHO) on Thursday issued a stern warning to European countries that a softening of measures on Corona could lead to a “severe storm”, as seen in India.
New cases and deaths are on the rise in India, according to the French news agency AFP. Experts are blaming this on large gatherings in a country with a population of 1.3 billion.
In this regard, the head of the World Health Organization Europe, Hans Kluge, addressing a press conference, said that countries should not make the mistake of easing sanctions too quickly to avoid such a new wave of corona infection.
He said, “when personal security measures are relaxed when there are large-scale gatherings when there is a high prevalence of the virus and the vaccination process is still low, it creates a severe storm in any country.”
“It is very important to understand that a situation like India’s can happen anywhere.”
In India, this so-called new strain of coronavirus is spreading across the country. But the World Health Organization has not yet confirmed whether it is more contagious or more deadly than other types of the virus.
According to experts, large gatherings such as sports matches or weddings are one of the reasons for the increase in cases.
While advising European countries, the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) said that “European countries should keep in mind that individual and collective health and social measures have been important factors in the formation of the epidemic.”
