The pandemic is taking a dangerous turn in the European countries and the authorities are finally taking note of it. With the increasing spread of infection and registered cases, Germany imposed travel restrictions on its citizens. 

Belgium’s foreign minister went into extensive care post getting infected with the virus. This has raised the alarm for others and the country’s authorities are doing everything in their power to protect their governing bodies and the citizens.

Spain has declared that the COVID condition is out of control in several areas of Europe and precautionary measures are being taken strictly so that there is reduced loss of life and community transfer. The police are checking the people for masks without neglecting anyone on the streets and preventing crowd formation.

Despite the strict lockdown measures in March and April, there was a significant increase in the number of cases during recent times which is a point of concern. If left unattended, the infection can spread even wider, especially in colder regions. The sudden surge of 10,000 cases per day happened to be the highest recorded number so far. 

After the surging cases, travel restrictions were imposed on the people and the journey to countries like Switzerland, Ireland, Poland, most of the parts of Austria, Capital Rome, and other Italian regions. Based on the most infected areas, the decision was taken to make the people aware of the risk that they’ll be taking while going from one spot to another. 

Over 5.3 million have been infected with the disease in the European region and 204,000 or more succumbed to the viral attack. This has not reached the first wave intensity but the authorities seem to think it won’t be long before that stage arrives and it’s better to be safe than sorry.
