أوروبا تحاول وقف انتشار الوباء

By Ninian Carter

December 20, 2021 - تُشدّد أوروبا القيود للحد من انتشار متغير أوميكرون بعدما سجّلت المملكة المتحدة أكثر من 540.000 إصابة جديدة بكوفيد19- في غضون أسبوع.

European countries are introducing more curbs to fight a surge in Covid-19 infections, including lockdowns and stricter travel restrictions, just as people try to enjoy the holiday season.

Weary populations looks set to have the Christmas and New Year holiday period disrupted again, as governments face critical decisions to try and stem the spread of the highly transmissible omicron Covid-19 strain.

To confuse matters further, debate rages over whether omicron produces milder symptoms than previous strains, like delta, and as such heavy restrictions may be unnecessary.
