MOSCOW (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 15th October, 2020) Regional Director for Europe at the World Health Organization Hans Kluge said Thursday the situation with the coronavirus was not the same as during the previous peak in mid-March despite record number of new cases.

"Over the weekend, new records were reached with daily totals surpassing 120,000 cases for the first time on both October 9 and 10. Does it mean that we are back to mid-March? No, we are not. Although we record 2-3 times more cases per day compared to the April peak, we still observe five times less deaths," Kluge told a press conference.
