The World Health Organization's Maria Van Kerkhove addressed the surge in coronavirus cases in Europe while speaking on CNN's "New Day" this morning.
“About 80% of countries across the European regions are seeing a growth right now. But the thing that we need to really understand…is many of the countries have brought these pandemics, these outbreaks, under control and they can do it again,” she said.
She advocated for unity in fighting the virus and for people to adhere to guidelines in hotspot areas.
“We are in a completely different situation than we were in a few months ago. We know so much more about this virus, how to control the virus. We need to stay focused, we need to have unity across the region, across the world, in fact, to be able to apply the tools that we have at hand where we can bring these outbreaks under control,” she said.
