European countries announce countdown to end “corona” restrictions

New infections, and German health officials expect the new wave of infections to peak next month.

Different approach

During the first waves of the epidemic, European countries adopted a three-month painful closure to control “Govt 19”, and while the move could lead to a moratorium on the movement of people, a halt to inspections, and a halt to the economy, the direct results are in favor of preventing the collapse of health systems and saving lives.

However, three European countries, Spain, its neighbors Portugal and the United Kingdom, have separately called for a new approach to controlling the virus, which, in conjunction with its transition and control from the emergency box to the normal disease mode such as influenza, is more likely to cause disease and more vulnerable groups. Intensive treatment is given.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sachez has called on the EU to adopt this new approach, particularly making it clear that the new mutant “Omicron” virus has become less dangerous. He added, “In the coming months and years, we must think without hesitation, and what science says: How to manage epidemics at different levels?” He added, “The changes at the end of the Omigron outbreak should not be successive, but we must act now to redraw the world after the epidemic.”

It is sad that people are dying from the flu, and it is sad that about 20,000 people could lose their lives in the worst years of the flu, but we have not completely shut down our country. “The Govt will not move,” he said. It will be with us for many years to come, perhaps forever, and we must learn to live with it … I think we are leading Europe in the transition from one epidemic to another, and leading others in showing the world. How to live with Govt. “

The next peak

According to German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach, the number of corona virus infections in the country is expected to continue rising for several weeks before reaching a peak next month. In an interview with the second German television station “ZDF”, Lauterbach added that “although the current hospitalization rate is low, clinics are likely to see severe pressure in the coming weeks,” according to the percentage of people over the age of fifty.

Experts say that in general children have the best response to “Govit-19” infection, but it is definitely necessary to use it, taking into account some conclusions that the “Omicron” variant can lead to children with severe illness. They have all the shields to protect them from infection.

According to Dr. Yogesh Kumar Gupta, a pediatrician in Bangalore, the vaccine campaign for adolescents has recently begun as children are currently highly vulnerable and have not been vaccinated, and it is believed that the ‘Omigron’ variant avoids immunosuppression. Compared to the previous two waves, it weakens the ability of children and adolescents.
