A new wave of corona infections has hit Europe. The World Health Organization (WHO) has expressed concern over the spread of Covid-19 in Europe. Hans Klug, regional director of the World Health Organization, told the BBC that the World Health Organization was “very concerned” about corona infections in Europe. If emergency measures are not taken, there could be a record of 500,000 deaths in Europe by next March.
Hans Klug said the move, like wearing a mask, could be an emergency. Several European countries have already reported high rates of corona detection. It has also announced a comprehensive and partial lockdown as an emergency measure. In this context, the World Health Organization has warned.
Hans Klug added that the corona spread is more due to the winter season as well as inadequate vaccination and the regional dominance of the highly contagious corona delta type. In addition to adhering to emergency hygiene rules, increasing vaccination rates and new medical procedures can help fight coronary heart disease.
In an interview with the BBC, the World Health Organization (WHO) official said: “Covid-19 has become a major cause of death in our region. We know what to do to fight this disease. ”
Klug added that compulsory immunization should be seen as a last resort, but that legal and social debate on the issue was timely.
Meanwhile, the European country Austria is going to start a complete lockdown from next Monday as the corona infection is on the rise. Earlier, a lockdown was announced in the country for those who had not been vaccinated against coronavirus.
According to the BBC, Austrian Chancellor Alexander Schlenberg has said that the country will have a full lockdown for 20 days. The legal obligation to get vaccinated will be imposed from February 1 next year. Another European country, Slovenian Prime Minister Edward Hager, has announced a lockdown for non-vaccinated people from tomorrow. The Czech Republic has also imposed various restrictions. The Netherlands has begun a partial lockdown. Germany has also agreed to impose strict restrictions on people not vaccinated.
Dr Kluge said factors like the winter season, insufficient vaccine coverage and the regional dominance of the more transmissible Delta variant were behind the spread. He called for increased vaccine uptake and the implementation of basic public health measures and new medical treatments to help fight the rise.
“Covid-19 has become once again the number one cause of mortality in our region,” he told the BBC, adding “we know what needs to be done” in order to fight the virus.
Corona of 44,242 people were identified in a single day in the UK last Friday. The country’s government has repeatedly said it has no plans for a new lockdown, but could face stricter restrictions to prevent the spread of corona.
