Europe ‘safe’ in the fight against the plague: WHO | Coronavirus News Plague
The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that only 17% of white people have been fully vaccinated while the Delta population is spreading.
The World Health Organization has urged Europeans to take good care of the holiday season, having warned that the continent was “not at risk” in the fight against COVID-19.
“With more parties, crowds, and big celebrations and games coming days and weeks, WHO Europe wants to be careful,” WHO Europe Europe chief executive Hans Kluge told reporters Thursday.
“If you decide to walk away, be careful. Be aware of the dangers. Use good judgment and do not compromise your profitability. ”
The call came despite the recent decline in the risk of disease.
In the past two months, there have been fewer cases of COVID-19 deaths, hospitalizations and hospitalizations, prompting 36 of the 53 countries in the region to reduce restrictions.
The number of COVID-19 infections last week reached 368,000, the fifth highest reported each week in April this year, Kluge said.
“We all need to be aware of the progress that has been made in many countries in the region, we must also acknowledge that we are not at risk,” he added.
Kluge says the so-called Delta, known for the first time in India, is complex.
This, he said, “indicates an increase in activity and other immunosuppressive measures are in place in the region where the majority of vulnerable people, over the age of 60, remain unprotected”.
Countries should learn from the recurrence in Europe last summer, although vaccinations are being continued throughout the region, Kluge said.
“Let’s not make the same mistake again,” he said, adding that only 30% of the state had received their first vaccine, which would not be enough to avoid another wave.
Seventeen percent received both standards.
Animal protection is achieved by vaccination and many scientists say that about 70 percent of people should have antibodies to prevent outbreaks.
But some experts say that even if half of all people have adequate protection, there may be some protection.
“A distance of up to 80 percent of the adult population is still there,” Kluge said.
