The World Health Organization (WHO) has revealed the Europe has seen soaring cases despite the vaccine efforts.

Europe is now the epicenter of the pandemic as there has been a 55% rise in cases over the last month and the WHO are calling for authorities in Europe to “close the gap” in getting more people vaccinated.

WHO emergencies chief Dr Michael Ryan said, “There may be plenty of vaccine available, but uptake of vaccine has not been equal.”

WHO director of 53 country Europe region, Dr Hans Kluge warned that the soaring cases across the bloc is of “grave concern.”

Dr Kluge said, “Europe is back at the epicenter of the pandemic, where we were one year ago.”

He warned that Europe could see a further 500,000 deaths by February and hospital admissions rates have more than doubled over the last week.

The rise in infections in Europe marks the fifth consecutive week which is the only region in the world where Covid is still rising.
