Europe Might Already Be Going Through New COVID Wave
SHARE

Experts were confident that the world currently has plenty of ways to deal with the coronavirus and that the pandemic is heading towards its end. But still, there are plenty of reasons to remain cautious. The WHO also said recently that’s it’s too early to declare victory over COVID.

According to Forbes, the last week has been through another surge of COVID infections and hospitalizations among several countries from Europe. Italy, the UK, and the Netherlands are all on the list. If that’s not convincing enough for you, check out what Eric Topol said, who is MD, Scripps Research Translational Institute’s founder, and director:

In case you wanted another reason to be convinced that the coronavirus doesn’t care about your financial status or how famous you are, you can keep in mind that Barrack Obama himself just tested positive for COVID. The former US President made the announcement via Twitter, writing:

I just tested positive for COVID. I’ve had a scratchy throat for a couple days, but am feeling fine otherwise. Michelle and I are grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, and she has tested negative.

It’s a reminder to get vaccinated if you haven’t already, even as cases go down.

It was not long ago when experts urged US citizens to prepare for future COVID outbreaks. Speaking about such a possibility, Abraar Karan, an infectious disease physician at Stanford University, declared as The Guardian quotes:

Once we have another variant, whenever that may be, the amount of spread from that variant will depend on what kind of preparedness we do now. What are we doing to make schools, workplaces and public spaces more safe?

As worldometers.info reveals, the world has reported a total number of over 6 million deaths caused by COVID since the pandemic started.
