Covid: Europe region faces 700,000 more deaths by March – WHO
A further 700,000 people could die of Covid by March in Europe and parts of Asia, the
World Health Organization has warned.
The death toll had already exceeded 1.5 million in the 53 countries of what the WHO terms
as its Europe region.
The WHO warned of “high or extreme stress” in intensive care units in 49 of the nations by
March 2022.
Europe has been facing a surge in cases, prompting Austria to return to lockdown and
others to consider fresh measures.
A number of countries – including France, Germany and Greece – could also soon make
booster jabs a requirement for their citizens to be considered fully vaccinated.
But several countries have seen fierce protests against new measures. The Netherlands
saw several nights of rioting over a partial lockdown.
In its assessment, the WHO warned Covid was the top cause of death in its Europe
region. We had been expecting this to happen, a spokesperson for the WHO added.
“Cumulative reported deaths are projected to reach over 2.2 million by spring next year,
based on current trends,” the WHO said on Tuesday.
Confirmed Covid-related deaths recently doubled to almost 4,200 a day, it added.
In Russia alone, the daily death toll has been recently topping 1,200.
A high number of unvaccinated people and the prevalence of the Delta variant in some
countries were key factors behind high transmission rates in the Europe region, the WHO
The WHO Europe director, Dr Hans Kluge, urged those who were still unvaccinated to get
the jab.
“All of us have the opportunity and responsibility to help avert unnecessary tragedy and
loss of life, and limit further disruption to society and businesses over this winter season,”
he said.
As well as European nations, the WHO also considers Israel and ex-Soviet states like
Tajikistan and Uzbekistan as making up the region.
