Copenhagen: The European chapter of the World Health Organisation on Thursday said it saw “alarming rates of transmission” of COVID-19 across the region and warned countries against shortening quarantine periods.


“The September case numbers… should serve as a wake-up call for all of us,” the WHO’s regional director for Europe Hans Kluge said.
