“World Health”: Europe may record 700,000 deaths from “Corona” by spring

Copenhagen – AFP
The World Health Organization warned Tuesday that the number of deaths due to Covid in Europe could rise from 1.5 million now to 2.2 million by March 2022, if the situation remains unchanged.
She said she expects “extremely high or extreme pressure in intensive care units in 49 of 53 countries between now and March 1, 2022,” adding that “the total number of recorded deaths is expected to reach more than 2.2 million by the spring of next year, based on the current trend.
So far, more than 1.5 million deaths from COVID-19 have been recorded in the region.
The World Health Organization believes that the high number of infections is due to the outbreak of the highly contagious mutagen delta, the lack of adequate vaccination and the relaxation of epidemic control measures.
And the organization’s data showed that deaths related to Covid had doubled since the end of September, from 2,100 per day to about 4,200.
“The situation related to Covid-19 throughout Europe and Central Asia is very serious. We are facing a challenging winter,” said Hans Kluge, WHO Regional Director for Europe, calling for a “more vaccine” approach that combines vaccination, wearing a mask, health measures and social distancing. .
And the World Health Organization considered that putting a muzzle reduces the incidence of the disease by 53%. Universal use of up to 95% could prevent more than 160,000 deaths by March 1.
It is also more and more evident that the protection provided by vaccination against infections and mild forms is declining,” according to the World Health Organization.
The agency therefore recommends a booster dose for the most vulnerable, including those with immunodeficiency.
