Europe reckons with Covid-19 restrictions as a bleak winter looms
Europe reckons with Covid-19 restrictions as a bleak winter looms.

The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control warned on Wednesday that the impact of COVID on national health systems in Europe will be "extremely significant" in December and January unless countries scale up prevention efforts.

According to Andrea Ammon, director of the ECDC, European governments should increase vaccination rates, offer booster doses, and impose restrictions. "And all three of those things must be completed right now," she stated.

According to ECDC data, nearly 66 percent of the European Union's total population is fully immunized.

This creates, "a big immunization gap that cannot be filled quickly, allowing the virus to propagate," according to Ammon.

Face masks, working from home, keeping a safe distance, and avoiding social interactions are all possible constraints. Lockdowns are utilized when, "you want to bring down a very high case number in a short period of time," according to Ammon.

"I am aware that achieving this aim will necessitate a major commitment from public health authorities and society at large," she added. However, this is the time to go that extra mile.

"We still have some time till Christmas," Ammon said when asked if holiday celebrations should be canceled. However, if the situation does not improve, these measures may need to be used during the Christmas season as well.

Booster dosages should also be "considered" for all adults, with a priority given to those over 40 years old, according to the ECDC. Italy permitted people who have been vaccinated to get a booster dose five months after the second shot of their initial immunization on Tuesday.

The number of new infections, hospitalizations, and fatalities in Europe has risen dramatically in recent weeks, prompting governments to impose further restrictions, including a lockdown in Austria, one of the first in Western Europe since vaccines became available. Jens Spahn, Germany's health minister, said on Monday that, "just about everyone in Germany will probably be either vaccinated, recovered, or dead", by the end of this winter.

According to the World Health Organization, Europe accounted for more than half of all COVID deaths in recent months, with more than 2 million new cases each week, the highest rate since the outbreak began. The World Health Organization announced on Tuesday that COVID had surpassed HIV/AIDS as the greatest cause of mortality in Europe, with the death toll expected to top 2 million by next spring.

Hundreds of thousands of Europeans demonstrated, often violently, against vaccine mandates and other restrictions over the weekend.

There are significant differences in immunization rates among European countries. In Bulgaria, only
