WHO warns of 'very serious situation' in Europe, with 'alarming rates' of virus transmission


(CNN)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.
    "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."

    Save the sarcasm as it does not bode well for you to use it.  The Wuhan is NOT backing off with ANY of the Grandiose BS Hyped Masks, Separation, Distancing, Closure of facilities ANY of the  STUPID Aspects.  Until the bug infects the majority it is NOT going to STOP or have you NOT figured that sheit out yet?  All the attempts all the national level games by politicians listening to wannabe world saviour Doctors that know no better of this disease and you are whining of Trump.

    Made out as but is NOT a "2nd Wave" but a continuance of the first that NEVER STOPPED just was Slowed to the level of Least resistance and that FAILED.

    The point is  that Europe RECEIVED the WUHAN 30-40 days BEFORE we did... They LOCKED DOWN and RUINED their economy... and NOW IT IS BACK...

    If a similar thing happens here im sure you TUR'DS will say ITS TRUMP FAULT... but it looks like when people move around and mingle, IT SPREADS... They WEAR MASKES in Europe and THEY LOCKED DOWN... and ITS COMING BACK..

    Hopefully we are several weeks BEHIND them in a reoccurance... and hopefully a vaccine will be available and help... THEY NEED IT NOW.

    I would like to see a list of YOUR EXPERTS... as far as i can tell EVERYONE that had an opinion in March / April was 100% WRONG and has another "opinion" now...

    I remember YOUR post about the WUHAN being NOTHING... More people die from CANCER was YOUR opinion at the time.... LESS THAN THE FLUE according to YOU.

    In the ME and Eastern Asia it is spinning up again.  India is seeing 100,000 cases per day, NO country is exempt, China HAS to be blocking reports showing NO numbers.

    this isn't the '2nd wave', just a continuation of the 1st 'wave'..... some 'bean counter/ stats guy' will know but I'm guessing you'd have to have ZERO reported for 'tested infected' / 'symptoms' for say 2-3 MONTHS before the 1st wave was over ?
    What's interesting, kinda, is the age group . 24-60ish, so the youngins are back to partying, elders WORKING again ?? IE NO masks, NO social distancing.

    It'd probably be better to  get everyone expose, let the strong survive and move on.

    Wife got a call from her Sis, seems their cousin's husband who has been battling with cancers of varied forms just finished chemo a month ago, got to feeling bad but chalked up to chemo session, last week was determined has the CV19 virus, so too the cousin has shown positive, Sis in law has to allow another week to go in for testing to see if She has it as visited with them for a Full day last week prior to the positive test.

    The hubby is currently in hospital with a roiling temperature that will not subside, O2 levels still reasonable so no vent and are considering some drug therapies that will not damage what has been weakened by the chemo treatments.  Doc figures he got the virus during the last chemo session as was at a STL Hospital site.

    This has also been rationalized as THE most common way the virus is moving, for Seniors in homes a few HAVE to receive Dialysis or Chemo treatments where must go to a clinical site to receive, they become infected and return to the homes where the infections spread like fire, NOT at Bars or restaurants or shopping or even staff at the homes dragging it in.

    Will remain a see/saw battle until either a Viral Vaccine is developed or the virus morphs to something LESS Viral against Humans.

    Brings to mind the Heston movie Omega Man.
