Corona virus: Nearly half a million people saved by vaccine – guide

The good news!

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), at least 470,000 people over the age of 60 in Europe alone have been saved from death since the launch of the Covit 19 vaccine.

The WHO’s European office in Copenhagen announced on Thursday that the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC) has published a study in 33 Eurosurveillance magazines. This estimate does not include cases saved by vaccination for persons under 60 years of age.

Hans Glck, WHO Regional Director, said that vaccines against Govt-19 are a miracle of modern science. This study makes it clear that it has the promised effect of “saving lives and providing the highest level of protection against serious illness and death.”

In some countries, the number of deaths without vaccines could have doubled. Therefore, it is important to achieve greater vaccine coverage in risk groups with all member states as soon as possible. Countries with low vaccination rates should continue to prioritize the most vulnerable and protect vulnerable groups as soon as possible.

As of December 2019, the WHO reported more than 1.5 million confirmed deaths from COV-19 in countries in the European region, of which 90.2 percent were over 60 years of age.
