For the second week in a row, Europe remains the only region in the world with an increasing incidence of Covid-19, according to the World Health Organization. This was reported by the press service of the organization.

According to WHO, during the week 25 to 31 October 2021, the number of new cases of infection in the world increased by 3% compared to the previous one and amounted to 3,021,634.

Europe reported a 6% increase in new weekly cases as compared to the previous week. The largest increase in deaths over the week was recorded in the regions of South-East Asia (50%) and Europe (12%).

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) has granted approval for emergency authorization to Covaxin vaccine co-developed by India’s medical-research agency and local manufacturer Bharat Biotech International Ltd, the WHO said in a tweet.

The vaccine was approved in India in January while the third phase of clinical trials was still under way, sparking some concern and criticism.

Bharat Biotech, which makes the vaccine, has since published data suggesting 78% efficacy.

The WHO's expert panel, which authorises emergency approvals, had asked for more data last month while examining the application Bharat Biotech had filed in July.
