 The World Health Organization expected a record number of deaths from the Coronavirus in Europe during the next two months.

"In October and November, we will see a rise in deaths," the World Health Organization’s regional director for Europe, Hans Kluge, told AFP, adding that the matter will become more severe at a time when the number of infections increases in the continent, but the number of daily deaths is stable.

The World Health Organization in Europe today is organizing a 2-day meeting that includes about fifty member states to discuss the response to the epidemic and agree on its five-year strategy.

Kluge, who is based in Copenhagen, warned those who believe that the end of the epidemic will coincide with the launch of the vaccine which is still under development, saying "I hear all the time that the vaccine will be the end of the epidemic. Of course not."
