By March 2022, there could be another half a million deaths from the coronavirus unless urgent action is taken. This was stated by the director of the WHO European Office, Dr. Hans Kluge, writes the BBC.

So he commented on the information about the high incidence rate in several European countries and the introduction of a full or partial lockdown.

“The next wave of COVID-19 in Europe is observed due to the approaching cold weather, low vaccination rates in several countries and the emergence of more infectious strains,” he said.

Kluge called for a legislative and public debate on mandatory vaccination.

“Before resorting to mandatory vaccination, you need to look at other tools, for example, at covid passes, which do not limit freedom at all, but, on the contrary, help to preserve it,” he concluded.

According to him, returning to a strict mask regime can help reduce these indicators.
