The pill case in the U and UK is at record highs in Europe.
The United Kingdom has seen a surge in cases and deaths, with 11 cases and 7 deaths reported so far this month, according to a government-commissioned report released Thursday.
The U.K. government has been concerned about the pill case spike since it first came to light in December.
A new report from the UBS Wealth Management Research Centre says the U-17 pill case was at record levels in the first half of 2017.
The report shows a sharp rise in the number of pills found in the country since December, when the drug was first introduced in the United Kingdom.
The rise in pill cases and overdoses has been attributed to the U’s opioid crisis, with overdose deaths rising from a year ago to 8,974 in March.
The new report says that more than a third of the cases in the UK in 2017 were from the UK’s West Midlands, where overdose deaths increased from 2,914 to 2,963.
The report does not show how many pills were found in this area.
More than 40 percent of pill cases in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland were linked to U.N.-sanctioned poppy cultivation, the report said.
