Brussels wants more vaccinations: ‘Only way to win war against corona’ | Abroad

The last two variants of corona that have been plaguing the world and Europe for over a year and a half now pose ‘a serious double challenge’, according to von der Leyen this afternoon, but Brussels is ready to take up the fight. She spoke of ‘a kind of war, with the virus and its variants on the one hand, and our vaccination programs on the other. I want us to win that war.”

The most important countermeasure is therefore the acceleration of vaccination. “The delta variant leads to more infections, more hospitalizations and more deaths, especially among unvaccinated people,” said von der Leyen, a doctor himself. ,,We don’t know everything about the omikron variant yet. The World Health Organization considers it a high risk. What we know about the delta variant is that it is a race against the clock. Full vaccination plus a booster shot offer the best protection.”
