Confinamentos na Europa com casos a subir no RU
December 20, 2021 - A Europa aperta as restrições para conter a disseminação da variante Omicron depois de o RU detetar mais de 540.000 novos casos de Covid-19 numa semana.
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.
