On Thursday, The World Health Organization [WHO] warned us about the spreading of the COVID-19 across Europe. WHO said that this is a “Grave Concern” as Europe could see another half a million deaths by early next year.

The European regions under WHO counts fifty-three countries and regions including some areas of Central Asia. All together, the number of cases amounts to 78 million COVID-19 cases.

WHO Europe director Hans Kluge said “we are once again at the Epicenter”. Kluge added that the “current pace of transmission across the 53 countries of the European Region is of grave concern.

According to Kluge, the rise in COVID-19 cases is due to “insufficient vaccination coverage” and “the relaxation of public health and social measures.”

According to Hans Kluge, last week, with nearly 1.8 million new cases and 24 000 new deaths reported, Europe and central Asia saw a 6% increase and 12% increase, respectively, compared to the previous week. Over the past 4 weeks, Europe has seen a greater than 55% increase in new COVID-19 cases.

According to a reliable projection, if we stay on this trajectory, we could see another half a million COVID-19 deaths in Europe and central Asia by the first of February next year – and 43 countries in our Region will face high to extreme stress on hospital beds at some point through the same period.
