The upcoming Easter weekend is not the time to relax lockdown restrictions, says Dr Hans Kluge, World Health Organization regional director for Europe.
"Now is not the time to relax measures," he said. "It is the time to once again double and triple our collective measures."
Dr Kluge added: "We must soldier on. To think we are coming close to an end point is a dangerous thing to do. The virus leaves no room for complacency."
