Summer in Europe this year begins with an increase in the number of people infected with covid, according to Agence France-Presse.
Within a few weeks, an acceleration in the spread of coronavirus was registered in a number of European countries. This trend is thought to be driven by sub-variants of the Omicron variant.
One of the countries where infections are on the rise is Portugal, which saw an increase in new cases last month and this month the number of new cases reached almost 30 thousand a day earlier this month. Subsequently, the number of infections began to decrease.
In the UK, the daily number of infections approached the highest since the beginning of the pandemic.
30,526 new infections were reported in Italy over the weekend in 24 hours. In seven days, a 63.4% increase in the number of infections was recorded, according to a report from the Italian Ministry of Health.
In Germany, the number of infections is also growing.
France is no exception to the general European trend, as the spread of the virus has accelerated over the past ten days. The average daily number of infected on a seven-day basis is more than 44,000, BTA adds.
