Europe is facing a new wave of the Covid pandemic. In Europe, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has warned that a new wave of the Covid pandemic is likely to intensify as the winter months arrive. The European Medicines Agency has also stated that it is asking the countries of the European Union to strengthen vaccination.
Marco Cavalleri, Head of Health Threats and Vaccine Strategy, said in a press conference that the Covid virus is evolving rapidly and that new omicron sub-variants such as BQ.1.1 and its sub-variants are causing variations in the omicron variant B.A. Concerns were also raised that new strains could outcompete the currently available monoclonal antibody products. Furthermore, the average rate of booster vaccination in the EU region has been very low over the past few months, which is disappointing, Cavalleri said.
