WHO Europe director Hans Kluge said on Monday that the number of deaths in poorer nations continued to rise.
Copenhagen. The World Health Organization (WHO) warned on Monday that around 236,000 people could die from Covid in Europe by December. This prediction has been made regarding rising infections in Europe and stable vaccine rates on the continent. Countries in the region have seen an uptick in infection rates as the delta variant is spreading particularly rapidly among unvaccinated people.
WHO Europe director Hans Kluge said on Monday that the number of deaths in poor nations, especially in the Balkans, the Caucasus and Central Asia, continues to rise. Last week, there was an 11 percent increase in the number of deaths in the region. According to one figure, 236,000 deaths are expected in Europe.

To date, around 1.3 million people have died from Covid in Europe. Of the WHO Europe member states, 33 have recorded more than 10 percent incidence in the past two weeks, according to Kluge. These are mostly in poor countries.
Kluge says that the delta variant is spreading rapidly in these countries. Along with this, negligence towards Corona is being seen among the people here. People are going on summer trips. In such a situation, there is a possibility of increasing cases. While about half of the people in the WHO’s Europe region have been fully vaccinated.
