The World Health Organization’s European region claimed that the coronavirus vaccine saved at least 1.4 million lives, with booster doses alone estimated to have saved 700,000 lives.

The organization emphasized the importance of continuing vaccination efforts, especially for vulnerable populations, and urged investment in healthcare systems to address shortages of healthcare workers and medication.

Additionally, the WHO warned about the possibility of new, more severe COVID-19 variants and called for increased funding to address these challenges. (Trending: Trump Prosecutor Accused Of Playing Race Card In Public Address)

W.H.O. Europe regional director Hans Kluge, said, “Today, there are 1.4 million people in our region –- most of them elderly -– who are around to enjoy life with their loved ones because they took the vital decision to be vaccinated against Covid-19.”

“The first booster doses alone saved an estimated 700,000 lives,” he continued.

“As we learn to live with Covid-19 and other respiratory viruses, it’s absolutely vital for vulnerable populations to stay up to date with their Covid-19 and influenza vaccinations as recommended,” explained the director.

W.H.O. Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said, “We may be unprepared for anything out-of-the-ordinary, such as the emergence of a new, more severe Covid-19 variant or a yet unknown pathogen.”

“I am deeply concerned that health is slipping from the political agenda and that we are failing to address the ticking time-bomb facing our health and care workforce,” he continued.
