Russia, Ukraine and Romania are among the five countries with the highest number of casualties. Experts note the low vaccination rates. In Russia, where employees are placed on mandatory leave for a week, 25 people are infected with the coronavirus every minute.
As the winter months approach, the fight against the corona virus continues around the world.
The total number of cases in eastern Europe exceeded 20 million. Russia, Ukraine, and Romania are among the five countries with the highest number of fatalities in the world.
Experts attribute this to low vaccination rates. While only a fifth of the population in Ukraine is vaccinated with a single dose, there are fears that cases will increase exponentially with the winter months.
Daily cases in Russia are over 35 thousand. In the last week, 250 thousand people have been infected with the virus in the country. In the last 24 hours, 1,722 people died and 35,700 people were infected. 25 people are infected with corona virus every minute in the country.
The occupancy rate in hospitals has also reached the highest level since the beginning of the epidemic. In Russia, which vaccinates only a third of its population, workplaces will go down for a week at the beginning of November, by order of President Putin.
