The World Health Organization (WHO) believes an end to the pandemic in Europe is possible after the current Omicron wave. “It is plausible that the region is moving towards a final phase of the pandemic,” WHO Europe chief Hans Kluge told the AFP news agency today. At the same time, however, he urged caution because of possible further mutations of the coronavirus.
According to WHO estimates, 60 percent of all people in Greater Europe could be infected with the Omicron variant by March. The variant is highly contagious, but appears to generally cause illness with a milder course than earlier virus variants.
WHO Europe is responsible for 53 countries and territories not only in Europe but also in Central Asia.
