Covid: Europe's vaccine rollout 'unacceptably slow' - WHO

Published
4 days ago

The World Health Organization (WHO) has criticised the rollout of coronavirus vaccines in Europe as being "unacceptably slow".

It also says the situation in the region is more worrying than it has been for several months.

Vaccination campaigns in much of Europe have been hit by delays and the number of infections is rising.

What did the WHO say?

"Vaccines present our best way out of this pandemic... However, the rollout of these vaccines is unacceptably slow" and is prolonging the pandemic in the wider Europe region, WHO director for Europe Hans Kluge said in a statement.

"We must speed up the process by ramping up manufacturing, reducing barriers to administering vaccines, and using every single vial we have in stock, now," he added.

 

In the meantime, as long as vaccine coverage remained low, he said EU countries would have to impose lockdowns and other measures to compensate for the delays.

Mr Kluge also warned that the vaccine rollout, despite its slow speed, risked "providing a false sense of security to authorities and the public alike".

What is Europe's Covid situation?

Last week saw increasing transmission of Covid-19 in the majority of countries in the WHO European region - which includes more than 50 countries and extends from Greenland to the far east of Russia. There were 1.6 million new cases and close to 24,000 deaths, the WHO said.

Cases were rising in all but one age group, the organisation said.

Only 10% of the nearly 900 million people in the region have had a single dose of coronavirus vaccine.

 

It remains the second most affected by the virus of all the world's regions, with the total number of deaths fast approaching one million and the total number of cases about to surpass 45 million, it added.

 

The WHO also warned of the risks of greater spread associated with increased mobility and number of gatherings over the forthcoming religious holidays of Passover, Easter and Ramadan.

Some 27 countries of the more than 50 included in the WHO Europe region have implemented partial or full coronavirus lockdowns.

Why has the European rollout been so slow?

Only 16% of the EU's population has so far received a dose of vaccine.

The EU was slow to negotiate a contract with vaccine manufacturer AstraZeneca which caused supply problems. It also sparked a political row with the UK, where AstraZeneca has plants and where 52% of the population has had at least one dose.

The EU's deals with Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna also ran into early problems with production and distribution.

EU regulators were then slow to authorise vaccines for use. Some EU countries subsequently paused their rollouts of the AstraZeneca jab over reports of blood clots among a small number of people who had received a dose. Others restricted its use among older people over concerns that the company had not provided enough testing data.

 

All this has led to low public confidence in the AstraZeneca vaccine. Polling company YouGov says only a third of Germans and less than a quarter of French respondents now consider it safe.

The WHO and the European Medicines Agency, however, say the benefits of the vaccine outweigh any risks.

Vaccine rollout in some non-EU countries in the WHO's Europe area has also been slow. In Russia some people are hesitant to be vaccinated with Russia's own Sputnik V vaccine, for which safety data has been made public and which has been shown to be effective.

Meanwhile Ukraine received its first shipment of vaccines in late February - 500,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine manufactured in India. But there is widespread scepticism towards vaccination - last month the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology found 60% of Ukrainians did not want a jab.

However, a bright spot in Europe is Serbia in the Balkans, which has vaccinated more than two million of its seven-million population thanks to early deals with vaccine providers including China's Sinopharm. It has also vaccinated migrants and citizens of neighbouring countries.

What else is happening around Europe?

  • After President Emmanuel Macron announced new restrictions in France on Wednesday evening, Prime Minister Jean Castex said on Thursday morning at the National Assembly: "The third wave is here." He announced more detailed measures including a ban on alcohol in public spaces. France is set to begin a limited lockdown for four weeks from Saturday night, with travel restrictions extended from 19 areas to the entire country
  • Some 35,000 German doctors are to begin offering vaccinations at their practices after Easter, and 1.4m doses have been ordered for this part of the campaign
  • Eurovision is to take place in Rotterdam's Ahoy arena in May. The Dutch government wants to use the event as a test with 3,500 spectators allowed for all the rehearsals and the three big shows. There will be extensive safety measures for the 39 countries taking part
  • As infections surge in Belgium, a Brussels court has ruled that all the country's Covid measures have to be lifted within 30 days because the legal basis is not sound enough. The court backed a lawsuit from the League for Human Rights. Interior Minister Annelies Verlinden has appealed against the ruling
  • Spain is seeing a new rise in cases with an average incidence of up to 152 cases per 100,000 over the last two weeks. Madrid and Navarre in the north are among the areas seeing a spike
  • Cases are also rising in Germany, with 24,300 in the past 24 hours. Almost 90% of infections involve the UK (Kent) variant
  • The Austrian capital, Vienna and two other provinces in the east have imposed an Easter lockdown to help ease the pressure on hospitals. Austrians have been told to stay at home, except for necessary activities such as food shopping, work, exercise and helping their families
  • A new German survey suggests only 25% of people have faith in the government's vaccination strategy. The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine has been limited to over-60s in Germany and 40% of those surveyed said they did not want it

A 2019 “Project Runway” Contestant Named Kovid Presented a Facemask Outfit (video)

An episode of “Project Runway” that aired in March 2019 featured a contestant named Kovid who presented an outfit featuring a matching facemask, similar to what we are seeing now due to the pandemic. Is this yet another case of predictive programming?

Project Runway is a reality TV show about fashion design where contestants compete to create the best outfits. The show’s finalists prepare complete fashion collections for New York Fashion Week and, ultimately the judges choose a winner. If this description caused you to yawn in a prolonged and aggressive matter, I understand completely.

However, an episode of the 17th season of that show that aired on March 28th, 2019 is (in today’s context) completely mind-boggling.

 

In one segment, a contestant named Kovid Kapoor proudly presented an outfit that featured a matching facemask. Here’s the video:

In this video, the judge says “I looove Kovid’s look”. It’s almost as if she was talking about the facemask look of the COVID pandemic.

 

She then asks the model to put the mask back on. When one judge asks “What do you think of this mask?”, another judge answers “It’s sick”. I realize that it’s an expression, but the choice of words remains stupefying. That same judge also says “Can you breathe in there?”.

One year later, a virus named COVID caused governments across the world to force people to wear facemasks. Also, in a weasely and underhanded matter, several un-elected “officials” have been hinting at the fact that mask mandates might remain effective after the pandemic. Since then, countless fashion designers created outfits with matching masks.

Coincidence?

Is this all a crazy, insane coincidence? Or is it yet another case of predictive programming? In the past months, I highlighted several pop culture products that predicted COVID-19 in bizarrely accurate detail such as the book The Eyes of Darkness, the movie Contagion, The Simpsons clip about a “cat flu”, and the series Utopia. Is this Project Runway episode yet another example of the elite slyly preparing the public for its plans, maybe on a subconscious level?

 

At the very least, there appears to be some synchronicity at play here.

Coined by Carl Jung, synchronicity is defined as “the simultaneous occurrence of events which appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection”. Jung described these events as “meaningful coincidences”. He also believed that they happened for a reason. Perhaps, the universe is, somehow, trying to tell us something. Like, maybe, that there are dark forces at play around this COVID crisis.

The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous

 

That really could have been written today about boris and his SAGE team and the computer modelling of the imperial college

FLASHBACK OCTOBER 2020

 

"We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus."

This statement from Dr David Nabarro has also prompted questions about whether the WHO has backflipped on its advice, months after the pandemic was declared.

Didn't know about either of these...cheers!

 

I wonder how you achieve 'difficult to test' status? I have a strong feeling I'll be difficult to test.

 

I'm a complete techno muppet, but the app code things...could you get one that screws up the scanner?

The last time I went to a dentist - probably before you were born - there were no masks. Just a headlamp and a drill.

Sorry for the delay in responding on this one. Not important, I know, but "probably before you were born" -? Really? Do you know how old I am? Do you know anything about me? Or are you just posting stuff on an internet forum?

The technocracy is a SMART-GRID

 

Anything SMART is a prison bar in your technocratic gulag prison. The more SMART devices of all kinds there are around us the stronger the technocratic gulag will be

 

But just try and convince people to get rid of their smart phones. They are like crack-addicts with their smart phones and completely in denial about it too

My lady bought me a basic New model Nokia about 3 years ago. Think I topped it up once for a tenner.

Just before Christmas my daughter convinced me to be “cool” and “normal” and buy a fancy smartphone. 
Sent it back to shop in March.

For me will at the very least always be a waste of money.

😆 Fair enough - no, I'm not Troothie. I take your point though. I just don't like bickering with untermenchen (bus drivers and shop assistants etc) over masks. For me it's not worth the hassle - my way of dealing with it.

The only way this shit stops is if the globalists are taken down/out. Down as in jail, out as in [...] censoring myself due to 77th.

They’d probably serve time Pablo Escobar style. Watched a documentary a few years ago. He had a key to his cell and the prison. Could come and go as he pleased😁
