"Covid-19 fatigue" is growing in Europe.  World Health Organisation(WHO) Regional Director for Europe Hans Kluge told about it, the press center of the organization reported.

According to him, citizens made huge sacrifices to defeat Covid-19. They had to pay a price for it.

"In such circumstances, it is easy and natural to feel apathetic and demotivated, to experience fatigue."

He said this is based on "aggregated survey data from countries across the region."

"Although fatigue is measured in different ways, and levels vary per country, it is now estimated to have reached over 60 percent in some cases," WHO Europe director Hans Kluge said.

Dr. Kluge called on European authorities to listen to the public and work with them in "new and innovative ways" to reinvigorate the fight against Covid-19, which is on the increase throughout Europe.

As reported earlier, according to the most optimistic estimates, 10% of the world's population could be infected with the coronavirus. This was stated by head of the emergency services of the World Health Organization (WHO) Michael Ryan.

"The head of the World Health Organization for Emergencies said on Monday that his 'best estimates' indicate that approximately 1 in 10 people worldwide may have been infected with the coronavirus," the report said.
