    The survey published by the WHO draws on data from more than half of the 53 countries in the European Region.

The corona vaccination saves lives. In Europe alone, the death of around half a million people was saved by vaccination. The WHO European Office in Copenhagen published a report on Thursday according to which a total of 470,000 lives have been saved in the age group over 60 in around 30 European countries since the start of the vaccination campaign.

The survey published by the WHO draws on data from more than half of the 53 countries in the European Region. Based on these figures, the WHO assumes that almost 160,000 lives were saved in England and around 39,000 in France. Data were not available for the survey for 20 countries in the region, including Germany, the Netherlands, Russia and Turkey.

Vaccines do what they promise

The study shows that the vaccines do what they promise: “They save lives by offering a high level of protection against severe courses and death,” said WHO European Director Hans Kluge. “In some countries the death toll would be twice as high today without the vaccines.”

In the European Union, 67.7 percent of the population are vaccinated. There are enormous differences between the individual member states: in Portugal the vaccination rate is 86.7 percent, in Bulgaria it is only 25 percent. (SDA)
