Germany announced the removal of Britain from the list of high-risk countries due to Coronavirus, according to Western media.
The World Health Organization (WHO) said that the European continent has exceeded one million deaths due to COVID-19 and that the situation is still “serious”, as about 1.6 million new cases are recorded every week on the continent.
WHO Regional Director for Europe, Hans Kluge indicated that the risk of people with COVID-19 developing blood clots is much higher than for people who receive the AstraZeneca virus vaccine.
He explained that the Coronavirus death rate among people over the age of 80 years, who have been given priority to receive vaccines, has decreased to nearly 30%, which is the lowest level in the pandemic.
He added that the AstraZeneca vaccine is effective in reducing infection with the virus and preventing deaths. He stressed that the World Health Organization recommends its use for all eligible adults.
