Surging UK Variant COVID Cases in Europe

The UK COVID variant has brought a new surge in infections. The number of cases is increasing in several European countries (Italy, France, Germany, etc…).

Coronavirus restrictions were reimposed over three-quarters of the Italian peninsula, including Rome and Milan.

Daily cases have nearly doubled in Italy from where it was in mid-February. There were about 12000 cases per day and now are over 22000 cases per day.

The daily case increases exist in France, Germany, Poland and other European countries to a lesser extent than Italy.

The CDC indicates that the UK variant will be the dominant variant in the US by end of March or Mid-April. The UK variant is twice as contagious and twice as deadly.
