The World Health Organization has called on Europeans to wear masks at social and family gatherings on the eve of Christmas.
The agency said in a statement on Wednesday (December 16th) that Europe was at risk of a new outbreak of corona in the first half of next year if it did not take precautions during the Christmas holidays.
Meanwhile, the second wave is going on in Europe. Germany has entered a severe lockdown since Wednesday due to increased coronary infections. The country has announced a closure of schools and non-essential business activities until January 10. The restrictions will be slightly relaxed during Christmas. At that time a family can invite up to four close relatives.
Meanwhile, an evening curfew has been imposed in France since Tuesday (December 15). Breaking the curfew without urgent need will result in a fine of 135 euros.
