WHO slams slow rollout of vaccines in Europe, says it's prolonging the pandemic as new variants circulateThe World Health Organization said the slow rollout of vaccines in Europe is prolonging the pandemic as new cases are rising in every age group apart from one, people 80 years and older. There were 1.6 million new cases recorded the WHO European Region last week and almost 24,000 deaths, making it the second most affected of all regions after the Americas. "Only 5 weeks ago, the weekly number of new cases in Europe had dipped to under 1 million, but now the Region's situation is more worrying than we have seen in several months," said Dr Dorit Nitzan, Regional Emergency Director for the WHO Regional Office for Europe, in a statement. "There are risks associated with the increased mobility and gatherings over the religious holidays. Many countries are introducing new measures that are necessary and everyone should follow as much as they can." The variant that was first detected in the U.K., B.1.1.7, has become dominant in Europe and is more transmissible and can raise the risk of hospitalization, said the statement. "...The roll-out of these vaccines is unacceptably slow. And as long as coverage remains low, we need to apply the same public health and social measures as we have in the past, to compensate for delayed schedules. Let me be clear: we must speed up the process by ramping up manufacturing, reducing barriers to administering vaccines, and using every single vial we have in stock, now," said Dr Hans Henri P. Kluge, WHO Regional Director for Europe.
