It’s been reported that the new covid 19 cases are on the rise in Europe. Check out the latest news about all this.
WHO is concerned about growing covid cases in Europe
Just the other day, the WHO said that Europe is – once again — at the epicenter of COVID-19 cases and cited a “reliable projection” that said another 500,000 deaths by February.
“Hans Kluge, the WHO head in Europe, told a press conference that he blamed the relaxation of public health measures in many cities, the BBC reported. Another official from the health body said Europe’s struggles should be a “warning shot for the world.””
FoxNews revealed that Germany, which has vaccinated about 67.3% of the country, has recorded its biggest one-day jump in infections since the start of the pandemic. FoxNews cited France 24 and reported the following:
:There were nearly 34,000 new cases on Thursday. The report, citing the AFP, said Europe has experienced an increase in deaths per day for seven weeks in a row.”
Coronavirus in the news
It’s been just revealed that the US FDA will be needing more time in order to decide whether the Moderna covid vaccine for kids between 12 to 17 years old can be safely used.
The official notes reveal that the extended timeline is so the FDA can “look into reports of a rare side effect — myocarditis, or the inflammation of the heart muscle — in those who’ve gotten the shot. Moderna said the FDA informed the company of the delay on Friday.”
Here’s what Moderna said in a statement:
“The safety of vaccine recipients is of paramount importance to Moderna. The Company is fully committed to working closely with the FDA to support their review and is grateful to the FDA for their diligence.”
