KONTAN.CO.ID - LONDON. European nations must accelerate vaccine uptake and bring back mask wearing to tackle a surge in Covid-19 cases driven by an Omicron offshoot and avoid stricter measures later in the year. A senior World Health Organization official said on Tuesday.

In an interview with Reuters, WHO Regional Director for Europe Hans Kluge urged countries to take action now to avoid overwhelming health systems in the autumn and winter as the Omicron subvariant, BA.5, continues to spread rapidly.
