Rise of lawsuits, threats of new action: Summer begins again under threat of govt in Europe

The arrival of summer rhymes in Europe this year is driven by an increase in Covid-19 cases, driven by new sub-genres of Omicron, which are raising awareness.

Increase in cases in Europe

Many European countries have been facing a new acceleration of pollution for weeks.

The first victim, Portugal, experienced a significant increase in new cases in May, rising to nearly 30,000 epidemics a day in early June. Then the first wave began to recede.

In the UK, daily infections are again very high since the onset of the epidemic.

Further affected, in Italy 30,526 new cases were reported in 24 hours (Saturday to Sunday), an increase of 63.4% in 7 days, according to a recent report by the Ministry of Health.

Germany suffered the same fate.

Circulation of SARS-CoV-2 has accelerated for ten days on the mainland of France, and the pollution rate now exceeds 44,000 cases (more than seven days on average).

New subtypes

Recovery is explained by a combination of two effects, explains AFP Mircea T. Sofonea, a lecturer in epidemiology at the University of Montpellier. On the one hand, a “Decreased immunity“, That is”The protection provided by the dose of an infection or vaccine decreases over time“.

On the other hand, with the advent of new subspecies of Omicron, BA.4 and especially BA.5, they spread more rapidly from the double benefit of escaping infection and immunity.

We face the continuous evolution of the virus, which encounters individuals who already have antibodies – because they have already been infected or vaccinated – and there must be a selective advantage to ambush.Oliver Schwartz, director of the Institute Pastor’s Department of Virus and Immunity, decrypted his role.

BA.5, and lower BA4, is prevalent in Europe“, He adds. Gold”Epidemiological data show that it is 10% more contagious than BA.2.“.

Towards an increase in hospital admissions?

In the intensity of BA.5, “In the absence of conclusively established clinical data, it can be predicted“, Mr. Swartz believes.

The European Center for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC) said in mid-June, based on more limited data, “There is no evidence that BA.4 and BA.5 are associated with increased severity of infection compared to transmission types BA.1 and BA.2.“.

However, as with previous waves, the Center has warned that an overall increase in Govt-19 cases could lead to hospitalization, intensive care admissions and deaths.
