Europe faces virus upsurge as cases soar in Americas

PARIS (HRNW) – Europe is facing an upsurge in coronavirus cases, the World Health Organization warned on Thursday, as the disease continued its rampage through the Americas.

The WHO said some European health systems risked being overwhelmed, yet officials have continued to rescind restrictive measures designed to combat the virus s spread, with France reopening the Eiffel Tower to tourists for the first time in three months.

However, Europe s current caseload compares favourably with that of the Americas, where Brazil and the United States recorded almost 80,000 infections between them on Wednesday.

While some US states have moved to reimpose restrictions, Brazilian expert Domingos Alves warned that his country was sending people “to the slaughterhouse” by reopening too soon.
