The World Health Organization warned that Europe could register 236,000 new deaths from the Coronavirus by next December unless vaccination rates are accelerated.

The stagnation in vaccines across Europe is very worrying, and the number of deaths has risen by 11% in the region over the past week,” said Hans Kluge, Director of the WHO’s regional office in Europe.

Europe has recorded 1.3 million deaths due to COVID-19 so far.

Kluge attributed the increased transmission of the COVID because of the highly contagious mutated Delta strain and the exaggerated easing of restrictions and procedures, as well as the increase in travel during the summer, noting that although nearly half of the European population received a full vaccination against Corona, vaccinations decreased by 14% during the past six weeks due to the difficulty in obtaining vaccines in some countries and the reluctance to obtain the vaccine in other countries.
