“The virus is already spreading quite rapidly is a big worry.   World Health Organization warned that there was a “very serious situation". 
The United States surpassed 7 million coronaviruses, according to John Hopkins University. 

India is now the second most corona-affected country, having  Corona cases, till September  more than 60 lakhs, which   it surpassed Brazil, Russia, Peru, and the UK.  While in   France, people already covered  more than 5 lakhs and in Germany,  it was near to 3 lakhs.

In Africa, the global humanitarian relief body says, It believes the true scale of the pandemic may be hidden because of lack of testing and issues with data. Ethiopia is  the fourth on the continent in cumulative cases after South 

Africa, Morocco, and Egypt.  WHO says changes in testing capacity and strategy can also affect numbers.

New infection control restrictions in Europe stirred anger and frustration around the world. Demonstrators in Madrid complained that new lockdowns to confront mounting case numbers were discriminatory. 

In London, thousands of anti-lockdown demonstrators were  broken up by police. Protesters in the Spanish capital hit the streets a day before a partial lockdown is extended.

In France, authorities trying to soothe the lockdown pain.

Local restrictions have been imposed in  

 

various parts of Europe to quell outbreaks of infection. 

German Health Minister Jens Spahn said rising coronavirus infection numbers in countries like France, Austria and the Netherlands were “worrying” He added that countries like Spain had infection dynamics “that are likely out of control.”

It comes as the U.K.’s chief medical officer and chief scientific 

advisor warned that if the current trend in rising  cases continued, doubling every seven days, and no action was taken, the country could expect to see almost 50,000 new cases per day in mid-October.

“All don’t want a further wide-scale lockdown but they also don’t want the virus to spread. It’s not going to be an easy way to solve both.
Economic hopes are fading.  It really is hard to understand what the strategies of governments are at the moment.
