Covid 19 deaths rising in Europe: Is Britain the Next?

The European Center for Disease Control and Prevention has warned in recent days that the covid 19 pandemic situation in the EU continues to deteriorate, with “very worrying” in 10 countries and “worrying” in 10 others. Meanwhile, according to the latest statistics from the three European countries, Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic have the highest increase in Covid 19 and the resulting deaths in the continent. At the same time, Russia also has a daily record of deaths. It has broken the effect of coronavirus. Britain is also on the brink of returning restrictions. The number of cases is increasing in Britain, and the country must be prepared to take stricter measures to curb the covid 19.

Covid Status in Europe

The Stockholm-based European Center for Disease Control concluded in its latest assessment of covid 19 risks that the epidemiological situation in the EU is currently showing a rapid and significant increase in cases. However, the corona mortality rate is now low. But this rate is also slowly increasing. According to the World Database, the continent has seen a seven per cent increase in deaths and a 13 per cent increase in new cases of Covid-19, according to the World Database. The number of covid 19 deaths in Europe has reached more than one million and 352 people. The incidence of this disease in this continent has exceeded 68 million and 183 thousand people, which is in the second place after Asia.

“The message has always been emphasised: Do it all,” said Hans Kluge, head of the World Health Organisation (WHO) European Regional Office. Vaccination has the same effect that has been emphasised from the beginning, preventing the onset of severe disease, especially mortality. But vaccines, along with other preventative measures, will be most effective.

Covid in Western Europe 

At the same time, the weekly increase in the prevalence of corona is more pronounced in Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic. In Germany, covid 19 deaths rose 42 per cent to a total of 98,194 deaths. The number of cases increased by 49% and reached 257,896 in one week. So far, more than five million people in the country have been infected with the coronavirus. The death toll in Poland has risen 46 per cent to a total of 78,867 deaths so far. Infections also increased by 27% and reached a total of more than 3,204,000 people. The Czech Republic also reported 357 deaths due to covid 19 in one week, rising 34%. The number of cases has increased by 35% to a total of more than one million and 890 thousand people.

Due to the growing incidence and mortality rate, German authorities plan to impose restrictions on people who refuse to be vaccinated and thus enter restaurants, cafes, cinemas and other places. Avoid entertainment. One of the challenges facing the country’s authorities is citizens’ scepticism about vaccinations. However, 70.1% of the German population has received at least one dose of the vaccine. “We are facing two viruses in the country; the coronavirus and the hesitation in vaccination,” Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder said last week.

In Austria, covid 19 deaths increased by 41% in one week, and cases increased by 43%. All people 12 years of age and older who are not fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will be quarantined. Under the new rules, those who have not been vaccinated will not be allowed to leave their homes when Covid-19 patients occupy 30% of intensive care beds. They are also barred from attending entertainment venues, restaurants, hairdressers and other public places. The vaccination rate for the entire population of the country is 68.9 per cent.

The Netherlands was also the first country in Western Europe to impose covid 19 restrictions, which had been lifted since the summer. The three-week limit includes the closure of cafes, restaurants and shops from 8 pm and non-essential businesses from 6 pm.

Covid in Eastern Europe

Russia reported 1,219 deaths from the covid 19 and 38,823 new cases. Since October 16, more than 1,000 covid 19 deaths have been reported daily in the country. Also, the death toll since July has not been less than 700 people. Last year in the country, the death toll from covid 19 on December 24 reached 635 people. Russia is one of the countries with the lowest vaccination rates, with 41% of the population receiving at least one dose of domestically produced vaccine, including Sputnik. Two other Eastern European countries also have low vaccination rates: Ukraine at 30.2 per cent and Romania at 37.9 per cent. The vaccination rate is 56.5% in Poland and 60.2% in the Czech Republic. According to Russian officials, health certificates will be required to enter public places, restaurants, planes and intercity trains.

Increasing Casualties

Elsewhere in Europe, the covid 19 spread in the UK has stabilised after a few weeks. Mortality decreased by eight per cent, but morbidity increased by 0.7 per cent. In the UK, 75.6% of the population has received at least one dose of the Covid vaccine, and it is possible to inject a booster dose five months after the second dose.

More than half of covid casualties were reported in Europe in the first week of November. According to the latest figures from the World Health Organisation (WHO), the death toll from the coronavirus in Europe in the first week of November (this month) increased by 10%. More than half of the 48,000 Covid-19 deaths worldwide during this period were reported in Europe, according to the agency this week. According to the New York Times, Russia has the highest number of covid 19 casualties, a record in recent weeks, followed by Ukraine and Romania.

The World Health Organization (WHO) said that the number of new cases was highest in Russia, Britain and Turkey. The report also noted that Europe accounted for about two-thirds of the world’s 3.1 million new cases reported in the first week of November.

Germany’s Chaotic Condition

Referring to the growing number of people infected with the coronavirus, the German Minister of Health said that Germany is facing a national emergency. According to DW, German Health Minister Jens Spahn said that the country was facing a “national emergency“, noting that the situation with the covid epidemic had worsened last week and was now worse than last week. “We are in a situation where no action is out of the question,” he said in response to a question about the possibility of imposing a new quarantine on everyone.

The German health minister’s remarks come as the Bundesrat, Germany’s upper house of parliament, passed new restrictions to curb coronation a day after the House of Commons approved the measures. The number of new coronavirus cases in Germany has increased by more than 60% in the last two weeks. Germany recorded 52,970 new points daily. Yesterday, more than 65,000 cases were recorded daily, a record since the start of the epidemic. Health officials warn that the number is likely to double in the coming days. Earlier, German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned her people in a video that the country would face difficult weeks ahead, citing an increase in the number of cases of the covid 19.

Britain at the Brink of 4th Wave

The return of covid 19 restrictions in some European countries and concerns about the outbreak of the fourth wave of the virus have also fueled whispers of austerity measures in Britain. A senior British government medical adviser has warned that as the number of cases in Europe rises sharply, the country must be prepared to take stricter measures to curb the covid 19.

Andrew Hayward, director of the Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care at UCL, believes the UK is on the brink of collapse and that the government’s next step will largely depend on the speed with which the third dose of the covid vaccine is given. The Austrian government will impose a nationwide quarantine from Monday, and Germany has declared a health emergency. “The situation in Europe is a little different,” Hayward, a member of the government’s Advisory Group on New and Emerging Respiratory Viruses, told the BBC. Covid 19 infection rates have been high in the UK for a long time. Now there is collective safety. According to him, the number of hospitalisations and covid deaths in Europe has increased rapidly since last month.

The British scientist said that the average statistics in Britain are still high, but the per capita incidence in some European countries has exceeded Britain.

According to the latest reports, more than 44,000 people in the UK were infected with covid 19 overnight, but in Germany, the figure has risen to 59,000. “Our strategy has been to rely on vaccination and collective immunity,” Hayward said in response to a question about whether different European and British policies had played a role in curbing the outbreak. “If we measure antibodies in the adult population [Britain], about 98% of people have antibodies as a result of vaccination or coronary heart disease.” “Antibodies are not a criterion, and the level is important,” he said. Hayward said there is a lot of uncertainty in models that predict how coronary heart disease will spread in the future. But I do know that every winter, respiratory infections increase, and hospitalisations and deaths peak, and I see no reason why covid is different. “We cannot be delighted,” he said when asked if Britain could be satisfied with its management of covid. We have hospitalised more than 8,000 people with covid, about 1,000 of whom are on artificial respiration. We have a much smaller number of hospital beds than in Europe, so we are a bit on the edge of a knife. “When you add all the respiratory illnesses that are common in winter to social gatherings, we realise that the National Health Service is in serious trouble, so I think we need to be prepared for tough action,” he said.

Final Remark

Rumours of a return to covid restrictions in the UK have recently resurfaced, with the London government warning in a public retreat that it will reintroduce some of the limits it lifted two months ago if a new wave of covid breaks out and pressure mounts on healthcare. The latest poll results show that a significant portion of the population wants to apply the coronary restrictions again. Research carried out by The Independent shows that 40% of people are in favour of quarantine restrictions
