France, Spain and Greece are among the European countries which have registered a record increase of new cases of the Coronavirus, instilling fear that this might be the second wave of the pandemic at the height of the summer holidays.
In 24 hours, France registered 1,695 new cases, the highest number in more than two months, which means the total amount of cases in this country has gone up to 228,576.
Spain registered 1,772 new infections in a 24-hour period, bringing its number of cases to 305,767.
Meanwhile Greece has reported 124 new cases over the last 24 hours and this has raised the total number of cases in this country to 4,973.
The new cases of Covid-19 in various countries have started to increase once again after they began relaxing the restrictions which were devastating the global economy.
However, while governments are trying to get the economic wheel started again following the stagnation brought about by the pandemic, the precautionary measures such as social distancing are becoming more difficult to enforce.
