Coronavirus is ‘tornado with a long tail’ that could cause more deaths as the weather cools, WHO says


The head of the World Health Organization for Europe warned COVID-19[feminine[feminineis a “tornado with a long tail” and indicates that the increase in the number of cases among young people could ultimately be passed on to more vulnerable older people and lead to an increase in the number of deaths. Dr Hans Kluge said young people are likely to come into closer contact with older people as the weather gets colder in Europe.”We don’t want to make unnecessary predictions, but this is definitely one of the options: that at some point there would be more hospitalizations and increased mortality,” he told the journalists from Copenhagen, WHO’s headquarters in Europe.

Kluge said 32 of the 55 states parties and territories in the WHO European region experienced an increase in the 14-day incidence rate of more than 10%, calling this “certainly a widespread increase in Europe.”
