During the summer holidays, and perhaps because of them - in Europe it is naturally discovered that the opening of the economy and the sky leads to widespread infections • The number of cases in Spain tripled within a week • The French president is considering imposing new restrictions on citizens • Belgium has seen a 90% increase If the source of recent outbreaks is in schools or local congregations

After France, Germany and Belgium reported over the past week a sharp rise in the number of new verified, Spanish health ministry officials warn they may also be in the midst of the second wave. Yesterday (Friday) 922 new cases and at least 280 outbreaks were detected in various hotspots across Spain. Europe is entering a particularly high alert for fear that the second wave will again raise a high number of victims.

Spain was one of the countries hardest hit by the virus, where over a quarter of a million infections were detected and about 30,000 people died. Maria Jose Sierra, deputy head of the Spanish Center for Health Emergencies, said that the country's citizens should remember that the number of cases in the country tripled in just one week when at 3.7 the number of cases per 100,000 people was 8.76 while this week it was 27.39. In total, over the course of two weeks, 8,000 new cases were diagnosed in the province of Catalonia alone and 16,000 new cases in Spain as a whole.

Spain's alarming situation puts the whole of Europe on a new level of vigilance in which they want to act resolutely and quickly to prevent a major eruption that will lead to a wider second wave. Following the alarming rise in Spain, France issued a statement advising its citizens not to come to the province of Catalonia in order to contain the current outbreak. Norway for its part has announced a re-isolation procedure for anyone returning from Spain for ten days.
