WHO: Covid-19 is likely to kill nearly a quarter of a million in Europe by December 1st

Against the backdrop of a growing number of new coronavirus infections, the World Health Organization has warned that Covid-19 is likely to take nearly a quarter of a million lives (about 236,000) in Europe this fall due to the aggressiveness of the Delta coronavirus variant and the steadily declining immunization campaign.

The number of vaccinations in the 53 countries under the supervision of WHO Director-General for Europe Hans Kluge has fallen by 14 per cent since mid-July. Of the 53 WHO member states in Europe, 33 have also reported more than 10% morbidity in the past two weeks.

“Several countries are starting to see an increased workload of sick people and more deaths – 11% more last week than the previous week. At this rate, the forecast is that by December 1, there will be at least 236,000 deaths in Europe. with Covid-19, Kluge was quoted as saying by AFP.

The WHO also reports unchanging static levels of vaccination and the low rate of immunization in poorer countries.

Only six percent of people in low- and middle-income countries in Europe are fully vaccinated, and some countries have managed to vaccinate only one in 10 health professionals, according to the organization.

According to WHO Director for Europe Hans Kluge, an 11% increase in deaths on the Old Continent was reported last week. He added that the “stagnation of vaccination” in Europe is a matter of serious concern.

There are currently 1.3 million deaths due to Covid infection on the continent.
