Covid deaths in Europe to top 2 million by March, says WHO

Source: The Guardian

Total deaths across Europe from Covid-19 are likely to exceed 2 million by March next year, the World Health Organization (WHO) has said, adding that the pandemic had become the number one cause of death in the region.

Reported deaths have risen to nearly 4,200 a day, double the number being recorded in September, the agency said, while cumulative reported deaths in the region, which includes the UK, have already surpassed 1.5 million.

Describing the situation as “very serious”, the WHO said it expected “high or extreme stress” on hospital beds in 25 of the region’s 53 countries, with intensive care units in 49 countries set to come under similar strain.

On current trends, the region’s cumulative death toll would surpass 2.2 million by 1 March, it said.

3. Probably similar to Florida and California

Early adopters of the vaccines are now being infected at an increasing rate due to waning immunity. Places that were slower to vaccinate and let the virus run rampant are better protected right now, so crazy. That will probably swing back though as more children get vaccinated and more people get boosters.

2. Here's a map of the world where you can hover over any country and see its stats

such as 7 day average case rate per 100,000 and a little graph of the 14 day trend; or find it in the table below the map including vax stats.

On Scandanavia, mentioned upthread, here are the daily average new case rates per 100k (7 day moving average) followed by the fully vaxxed rate:

Denmark: 66, 76%
Norway: 43, 71%
Finland: 19, 72%
Sweden: 9, 68%
