Many countries successful in COVID fight seeing resurgent cases: WHO

Many countries that have been successful in tackling the Covid-19 are seeing an increase in cases due to religious or leisure gatherings or in closed quarters like nightclubs and dormitories since relaxing curbs, WHO officials said.

South Korea said for the first time on Monday it was in the midst of a “second wave” of infections around Seoul.

“There are many countries right now that have had success in suppressing transmission and bringing human-to-human transmission to a low level that are starting to see increasing cases,” WHO epidemiologist and technical lead on the pandemic Maria Van Kerkhove said. “Any opportunity that the virus has to take hold, it will.”
