France reported more than 9,000 new Kovid-19 infections for the second day in a row and said that hospitalizations were being made, indicating another worrying turn in Europe’s epidemic.

Prime Minister Jean Castex said there is a “clear decline” in France as the virus spreads mostly to young people, causing more cases even among the most vulnerable. According to Friday’s official data, daily virus-related deaths increased by 80 since mid-July.

“The percentage of positive cases will not stop increasing.” Castex said in a speech in Paris. “For the first time in several weeks, we are seeing a significant increase in hospitals.”

Castex said that to win compliance with the virus-bothered public, France would shorten the self-quarantine period for those who tested positive for 14 to seven days.
Western Europe overtook the US in daily new transitions this week, re-emerging as a historic hot spot after governments were squeezed by historic economic slopes, severe lockdowns lifted and Europeans traveled during the summer holiday season . Castex said that France is committed to avoiding another national lockdown, so people will have to live with the virus and follow precautions.

In the UK, coronavirus is Spreading rapidly for the first time since March, driven by an increase in cases in young people. Government figures show that the so-called fertility rate was again above 1, indicating that the prevalence is increasing.

UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock said, “We have seen around the world how young people grow up, are more likely to be initially hospitalized and die.” “The epidemic is not over.”

Spain, the country with the most confirmed cases in Europe, reported 4,708 new infections in mid-April, after a period of 24 April. According to government data, the cumulative infection increased to 566,326, with chronic cases included in the latest data. An additional 241 patients died last week.

Trump’s contrast

Europe has wreaked havoc in America’s election campaign, in contrast to the role that President Donald Trump played as progress in combating America’s outbreak.

“They keep a huge spike in there,” Trump said on Thursday at the White House. “We hope that is beyond our spike, and we will see, but we are doing very well in our country.”

According to Johns Hopkins, Germany recorded 1,716 new infections on Friday. Data. This was close to an increase of around 1,900 in April, the highest since mid-April.

Many new infections have been linked to the virus bringing home viruses, as well as young people socializing without any disturbances and respecting hygiene regulations. While the death rate is relatively low, the spurt in cases has worried policymakers as students return to school and companies try to bring back employees who are working from home.

Jean-Francois Delphresi, the head of the Scientific Council advising the government of President Emanuel Macron, said on Friday that people would probably have to gain “control” over their behavior after not strictly following the virus’s rules over the summer.

“The virus is spreading strongly in some areas – it’s not linear, but exponential,” Jean-Francois Delphacey, who heads the Scientific Council advising the government, said in an interview on Europe 1 radio on Friday. “The solution lies in physical disturbances, it is testing people, so we all need to be able to control.”
