The World Health Organization on Thursday said Covid cases were on the rise again in Europe after two months of decline and warned a new wave would come "unless we remain disciplined."

WHO's regional director for Europe Hans Kluge told a press conference, "Last week, the number of cases rose by 10 percent, driven by increased mixing, travel, gatherings and easing of social restrictions".
