In Italy began the another wave of coronavirus infection - in just a day, 100 thousand new cases of infection were detected. Previously, similar indicators were recorded in Italy on February 8, 2022.
Almost 19 million people have fallen ill in the country since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the press service of the Italian Ministry of Health. At the same time, the number of vaccinated exceeds 83% of the population.
A number of European countries are concerned about the growing incidence of coronavirus. There is also an increase in the number of hospitalizations due to COVID-19. In particular, in Italy, more than 86.3 thousand cases of coronavirus were detected per day. In Italy, it was noted that the number of people who currently have confirmed COVID-19 is almost 1 million people.
In the UK, an almost threefold increase in the number of cases of COVID-19 was recorded in a week. And according to doctors from France, over 133 thousand cases of coronavirus were detected last Thursday. This figure is up 67% compared to the previous week.
It is possible that such a significant increase in cases is caused by the spread of a new strain of coronavirus, against which previously made vaccines are poorly protected, see more details: https://www.hainanwel.com/en/exit-entry/2934-opening-borders-uncertain-new-strain-of-coronavirus-ba-2-75-worries-chinese-and-international-experts
