Hans Henri Krueger, director of the World Health Organization’s European office, said last week that more than 1 million new deaths from Covid-19 had been confirmed in the WHO European region.
Hans Henry Krueger said: “The situation in our region is serious; 1.6 million new cases are reported every week, equivalent to 9,500 cases per hour and 160 cases per minute.
In the past two months, the trend in diagnosis among people over the age of 80 has been different from that of other age groups, which may be due to the high vaccination rates of this high-risk group. Since February, the proportion of Covid-19 deaths in Europe over the age of 80 has gradually fallen to nearly 30 per cent, the lowest level since the outbreak. ”
There are few reported cases of thrombosis among the nearly 200 million people worldwide who have been vaccinated against AstraZeneca. Currently, people with Covid-19 have a much higher risk of thrombosis than those vaccinated against AstraZeneca. There is no doubt that the AstraZeneca vaccine can be effective in reducing hospitalizations and preventing deaths from Covid-19.
“We also know about reports of blood clots after Johnson and Johnson’s Coronavirus vaccination. WHO is closely monitoring these reports and will inform it of its findings in due course. ”
To date, the European region has received seven Coronavirus vaccine reagents of approximately 171 million doses. Nearly 13 per cent of the European population has been vaccinated against a Coronavirus, while nearly 6 per cent have already received two doses.
Hans Henry Krueger says WHO recommends that countries continue to vaccinate adults against AstraZeneca’s Coronavirus to protect them from the new Coronavirus.
