MOSCOW (Sputnik) - European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety Stella Kyriakides said on Friday that the European Union is experiencing another surge in COVID-19 cases.
"The #COVID19 pandemic is still with us. Numbers are rising again sharply in Europe," Kyriakides said on Twitter.
According to a weekly report on COVID-19 of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), there was a 27% increase in coronavirus cases in 21 out of 26 EU countries over the week. The 14-day case notification rate for the EU and the European Economic Association was 694.1 per 100,000 population compared to 518.6 the week before. This rate has been increasing for three weeks in a row.

The number of COVID-19 positive cases in the United Kingdom rose to almost 2.3 million from 1.7 million over the past week, up 32%, with Scotland being hit the most, the UK Office for National Statistics said in a weekly Coronavirus Infection Survey on Friday. The office added that the growth was "likely caused by increases in infections compatible with Omicron variants BA.4 and BA.5."
