Although the Govt-19 epidemic in Europe has been stagnant since early August, the region was halted on Monday, according to an AFP report established from official reports that the region has been experiencing another outbreak of infection and deaths since early October.

In the last 7 days, about 1,672,000 cases, or an average of 239,000 cases per day, have been reported, covering 52 countries and territories (from East to Azerbaijan and Russia). This is 18% more than the previous week, and 60% more than the stagnation of 150,000 cases a day in August and September. Forty-two countries in the region have seen increased pollution in the past seven days, while only seven have recorded declining figures.

With an average of 284,000 cases per day from November 2 to 8, 2020, the current figures are far below the maximum number reached in the region. But currently Europe has more than 55% of new infections worldwide.

Outside the micro-states, the countries most affected by the epidemic are the Czech Republic, with an average of about 3,100 cases per day in the last seven days or 124% more than in the previous week. Hungary follows 2,000 cases a day, 104% and Poland (almost 5,000 cases, + 95%). Latvia is currently the most polluted country in Europe in terms of their population, with 880 cases per 100,000 people in the last seven days, followed by Estonia (753) and Georgia (736).

The number of deaths in the region is also on the rise: an average of 3,120 daily deaths were reported last week, an increase of 16% compared to the previous week.

The average death toll has not reached 3,000 a day since the beginning of May, but these figures are far from the average daily 5,735 deaths recorded in Europe for the week of January 14-20.

Russia currently accounts for more than a third of all deaths reported in Europe (average 1,051 deaths per day), followed by Ukraine (485) and Romania (420).
