Experts are fearing two epidemics across Europe this winter due to influenza outbreaks along with corona. A Belgian virologist has warned that corona infections will increase in the future. The United Nations has called on business leaders in the world’s richest nations to provide vaccines to poor countries to deal with the situation.
The number of influenza patients in Europe is growing faster than expected. According to the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), the flu virus has been spreading widely since mid-December. Experts say that this winter, two European pandemics, Corona and Influenza, could face dire situations. It is feared that there will be pressure on the overall health sector as well.
Peter Coyote, a Belgian virologist, also warned that the situation could worsen in the coming winter, although the rate of corona infection is slightly lower in the spring and summer.
“Hopefully, in the spring and summer, the corona problem will be a little less,” Peter said. You may not have to face any more deadly variants. We already know how to deal with risk. Although Omicron spreads rapidly, its symptoms are not severe. But I’m worried about next winter. This is because the coronavirus can spread upwards during this time.
Although the coronavirus has spread rapidly, vaccination activities in low- and middle-income countries have been slow. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called on business leaders in the world’s richest nations to provide adequate immunization in these countries to address the overall Corona situation.
He said low- and middle-income countries were plagued by the Corona Rise, rising food prices, and the climate crisis. These countries are being deprived of many benefits. Big business organizations should help them in the distribution of vaccines
Earlier, the United Nations had said that rich countries would come forward to help countries lagging behind in vaccination programs at different times
