The World Health Organization (WHO) is “very concerned” about the spread of covid-19 in Europe, as the continent faces a new wave of infections.

In conversation with the BBC, the organization’s regional director, Dr. Hans Kluge, warned that 500,000 more deaths would be recorded without urgent action being taken.

Dr. Kluge indicated that applying measures such as the use of masks could be of immediate preventive help.

The warning comes when several countries report record infection rates and impose partial or total confinement orders.
