The World Health Organization says there was a seven per cent rise in new coronavirus cases across Europe last week — the only region in the world where reported cases increased.
The UN health agency said in its weekly assessment of the pandemic released late Tuesday that during the week of Oct. 11-17, there were:
More than 2.7 million new COVID-19 cases reported worldwide.
More than 46,000 deaths reported worldwide.
Both the number of new cases and deaths reported worldwide last week was similar to a week earlier, the report said.
The European region, however, was the outlier in terms of new cases.
“For the third consecutive week the European Region has shown an increase in new weekly COVID-19 cases, with over 1.3 million new cases reported during this week,” the report said, noting that more than half of the countries included in the WHO region reported an uptick in new weekly cases.
Russia had the most reported deaths in the week covered by the report, with 6,897 deaths — a six per cent increase from a week prior.
Russia’s health-care system is operating under great strain, Health Minister Mikhail Murashko said on Wednesday, as the national death toll from COVID-19 hit a daily high for the second consecutive day.
President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday approved a government proposal for a week-long workplace shutdown at the start of November to combat an alarming rise in COVID-19 cases and deaths. Speaking at a televised meeting with government officials, Putin said this period, from Oct. 30 to Nov. 7, could begin earlier or be extended for certain regions.
Ukraine, meanwhile, saw 2,140 reported deaths, according to the published WHO data, a 25 per cent increase.
