As the Covid outbreak spreads and worsens, reports suggest that Coronavirus cases in eastern Europe will soon surpass 20 million. The reason being that the region grapples with its worst outbreak since the pandemic started and inoculation efforts lag.
Countries located in this region have the lowest vaccination rates in Europe, with less than half of the population having received a single dose. New infections in the region have steadily risen and now average over 83,700 new cases per day. Some officials say that more social gathering indoors ,after the lifting of restrictions just as winter sets in, is driving a rise in COVID-19 infections in many countries across Europe.
