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."
"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."
Just a little FYI, Oklahoma ranked #3 least restrictive in terms of Coronavirus mandates. South Dakota is #1 least restrictive. Hawaii is #50 followed by California at #49, or most restrictive followed by 2nd most restrictive. Kind of interesting.
Good to see active cases going down @BOOMER. Thanks for the update.
Cleveland County is currently at 29 cases per 100,000 and has been in Orange 2 (25-50 cases/100,000) for the second consecutive week, so NPS should be virtual next week. Only a handful of cases within public schools and they're shutting down because of rises in college cases. SMH
