Belgium - which at one point recently had Europe's highest infection rate - said Wednesday it had taken a major step in containing the resurgence of the coronavirus.

Hans Kluge, WHO regional director for Europe, told a press conference: "Lockdowns are avoidable, I stand by my position that lockdowns are a last resort measure".

Japan's number of new coronavirus infections hit a record high on Thursday as the prime minister urged maximum caution but stopped short of calling for restrictions on travel or business.

Over 80 per cent of countries have reported a high incidence of new cases (more than 100 per 100,000 inhabitants) in the past 14 days, with over 700 per 100,000 inhabitants registered by one third.

Amid the serious lockdown situation and a growing number of cases, World Health Organization said that vaccines will not arrive in time to defeat the second wave of coronavirus.

Europe made up almost half of the world's four million new coronavirus cases last week but recorded a nearly 10 per cent fall in infections compared to the week before, the World Health Organisation says. Europe remains the hardest-hit region with the virus accounting for 46 per cent of new global cases and 49 per cent fatalities, the United Nations health agency informed. France and Russian Federation now account for roughly 27% of the total cases in Europe, according to Reuters tally.

Deaths rose by 585, with the total now at 131,578, the ministry said.

Over the last week, the daily average of hospital admissions dropped 24 per cent and new infections fell 39 per cent.

The WHO official informed that deaths due to COVID-19 had jumped 18 per cent last week.

Officials in the Netherlands, to the north, were easing coronavirus restrictions amid falling infection rates, and were poised to re-open venues like cinemas, museums, libraries, zoos and swimming pools - still with limitations on how many people can visit - after a two-week closure. "We have the tools to go after the virus, not the people".

Meanwhile, some people in Germany were growing increasingly restive about the prospect of increased lockdown measures.
