Dr. Hans Henri P. Kluge, WHO Regional Director for Europe, said: “In order to live with this virus and continue our daily lives, we need to take a ‘vaccine plus’ approach, boosters, if offered, and incorporate preventive measures into our normal routines . “

Taken together, wearing a mask, washing hands, ventilating indoor spaces, maintaining physical distance, and sneezing into your elbows are simple and effective ways to get a grip on the virus and keep society going. We all have the opportunity and responsibility to help avert unnecessary tragedies and loss of life and limit further disruption to society and businesses this winter season, “he added.

WHO also highlighted possible reasons for the rise in cases, as the reports mentioned that the European region is “delta-dominant” and the delta variant of the virus is highly transmissible, with no country more than one percent of another Variant reports.

Relaxing measures without caution is another reason the virus is spreading and large numbers of people who have not yet been vaccinated are susceptible to the virus.

World Health Organization director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Wednesday that Europe is once again the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic amid a “false sense of security” about the protection offered by vaccines.

“In many countries and communities, we worry about a false sense of security that vaccines have ended the pandemic and that vaccinated people don’t need to take any further precautions,” he said.
