WHO: COVID triples across Europe, hospitalizations double

WHO: COVID triples across Europe, hospitalizations double

The World Health Organization said Tuesday that coronavirus cases have tripled across Europe in the past six weeks, accounting for nearly half of all infections globally. Hospitalization rates have also doubled, although intensive care admissions have remained low.
In a statement on Tuesday, WHO’s Europe director, Dr. Hans Kluge, described COVID-19 as “a nasty and potentially deadly illness” that people should not underestimate. He said super-infectious relatives of the omicron variant were driving new waves of disease across the continent and that repeat infections could potentially lead to long COVID.

WHO said the 53 countries in its European region, which stretches to central Asia, reported nearly 3 million new coronavirus infections last week and that the virus was killing about 3,000 people every week. Globally, COVID-19 cases have increased for the past five weeks, even as countries have scaled back on testing.

“With rising cases, we’re also seeing a rise in hospitalizations, which are only set to increase further in the autumn and winter months,” Kluge said. “This forecast presents a huge challenge to the health workforce in country after country, already under enormous pressure dealing with unrelenting crises since 2020.”

Earlier this week, editors of two British medical journals said the country’s National Health Service has never before had so many parts of the system so close to collapsing.

Kamran Abbasi, of the BMJ and Alastair McLellan of the Health Service Journal wrote in a joint editorial that the U.K. government was failing to address persistent problems worsened by COVID, including ambulances lining up outside hospitals too overloaded to accept new patients.

They slammed the government’s insistence that vaccines have broken the link between infections and hospitalizations. Although vaccines dramatically reduce the chances of severe disease and death, they have not made a significant dent on transmission.

“The government must stop gaslighting the public and be honest about the threat the pandemic still poses to them and the National Health Service,” the editors wrote.

WHO released its fall strategy for COVID-19 on Tuesday. The U.N. health agency called for a second vaccine booster dose for anyone age 5 and up with weak immune systems, promoting mask-wearing indoors and on public transportation, and better ventilation in schools, offices and other places.

Kluge said Southern Hemisphere countries were currently experiencing a very active flu season that, combined with COVID, was straining health systems.

“We are likely to see a similar scenario in the Northern Hemisphere,” Kluge said, warning that increased pressure could lead to business, travel and school chaos.

He urged people to make their own decisions, even in countries where authorities have largely abandoned coronavirus restrictions.

“We’re all aware of the tools we have to keep ourselves safe, assess our level of risk and take the necessary steps to protect others if we get infected,” Kluge said. “Just because a mask isn’t mandated doesn’t mean it’s prohibited.”

Yes they had to have the placebo's at the beginning because they could not have a rush of injured people or it would scare the sheeple. From what I have read the boosters are now the kill shot. And they are also pushing the new disease SADS sudden adult death syndrome, because BS works on lots of folks. Be kind to your friends who drank the kool-aid because they might not be here long. In a large grocery store the other day and 99% of the people were still masked up. There is no help for these folks they will likely wear them forever now.

The thing is....there have been mixed so many Placebo's into these vaccination schemes, that only 2 out of 10 people might suffer from severe effects up to death. Therefore people that say, its caused by the vaccine will still be laughed at. The plan is so diabolical as transparent.
One can only hope that all of these quadrupule-vaxxed people die or suffer quietly.

Oh the ADE and AIDS are really starting to kick in just as hundreds of Doctors said it would. This uptick is from those who took the clot shot. Health England is good about reporting the truth for the most part and just stated that between April 1 and May 30, 94 % of the people who were in their care were vaxxed. So stop blaming the flu and put the blame wete it belongs
