The European Union will soon change the rules for crossing its borders due to the deterioration of the coronavirus situation. This was stated by the European Commissioner for Health Stella Kyriakides, reports La Razon.
According to the European Commissioner, the rules of the border crossing will be changed in the coming days. At the moment, it is not known what kind of changes we are talking about.
"The winter will be very hard. In December and January there will be a big burden on hospitals," she concluded.
Kyriakides stressed that countries in which less than 80 percent of citizens have been vaccinated will have to tighten restrictions to combat the spread of COVID-19. She recalled the need to be vaccinated and noted that each country can take decisive measures against the background of an increase in morbidity.
Earlier, the director of the European Bureau of the World Health Organization (WHO), Hans Kluge, predicted the death of half a million people in Europe due to COVID-19. According to him, the next wave of coronavirus in the European region is observed due to the approach of cold weather, low vaccination rates in a number of countries, and the appearance of more infectious strains. The head of the bureau called for a legislative and public discussion on the issue of mandatory vaccination.
