The executive director of the World Health Organization (WHO) for Europe has urged the nations of the continent affected by Covid to consider mandatory vaccination.

Robb Butler told Sky News on Wednesday that it was “It’s time to have that conversation from an individual and population-based perspective. It is a healthy debate.“The WHO official said, however, how are you?”Mandates have come at the expense of trust, social inclusion“In the past.

In early November, the WHO warned that Europe was “at the epicenter“From the Covid-19 pandemic, while earlier this week, the world health authority said that the continent accounted for 60% of Covid-19 infections and deaths in the world during the last week. WHO believes that the death toll from the pandemic in Europe could reach 2 million by March 2022, if the spread of the virus continues unchecked.

However, the former director of the WHO Department of Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health, Anthony Costello, recommended that governments exercise caution in making vaccination mandatory for fear of “repel many people who do not trust the government and vaccines.“Instead of sweeping mandates and blockades, he advocated for measures such as wearing masks and working from home.

Across Europe, only 57% of people are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, according to statistics provided by the Our World in Data website.

Last Friday, Austrian Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg announced that vaccination would be mandatory for all residents except those eligible for a medical exemption from February 1, 2022. Those who refuse to receive the injection could expect heavy fines, according to media reports. However, a decision has not yet been made on the exact age from which Austrians should be vaccinated. Austria is the first country in Europe to impose sweeping mandates, and most other nations on the continent so far make vaccination mandatory for only certain employees, with healthcare and public workers first in line.

However, there are a handful of countries beyond that have also required Covid-19 inoculation for all of their citizens. Indonesia took the step in February, and Micronesia and Turkmenistan followed suit in the summer.
