Europe: Europe hits record number of new confirmed cases in a single week

  世卫组织欧洲区域办事处2月3日公布的数据显示,因奥密克戎毒株扩散,欧洲区域过去一周新增1200万例新冠确诊病例,创疫情暴发以来最高周纪录。

  世卫组织欧洲区域办事处主任克卢格当天称,由于欧洲区域内疫苗接种率和自然抗体水平相对较高,冬季即将结束和目前观测到的感染奥密克戎毒株后重症率较低,使得欧洲区域的新冠死亡病例曲线开始趋于平稳,接下来一段时间可能成为控制疫情的窗口期。

  克卢格强调,欧洲区域内各国疫情发展各不相同,应根据自身情况制定或逐步解除防疫措施,在防疫和社会经济正常化间取得平衡。各国应继续加大新冠疫苗共享和接种力度,加大变异病毒监测力度,保护脆弱人群,强调个人防护和防疫责任。
