A joint #ECDC - @EMA_News statement on updating #COVID19 vaccines composition for new #SARSCoV2 virus variants.

Read full here: Image
Currently authorised vaccines continue to be effective at preventing hospitalisation, severe disease and death due to #COVID19.

However, protection against the virus declines over time as new #SARSCoV2 variants emerge. Image
In line with the outcome of recent meetings of international regulators and the @WHO, @EMA_News Emergency Task Force recommends updating vaccines to target #XBB strains (a subgroup of #Omicron), which have become dominant in Europe and other parts of the world. Image

Autumn #vaccination campaigns focused on older age groups and other high-risk populations are key to decrease impact of #COVID19.

Read full report:
Press release:
To decrease the impact of #COVID19 hospitalisations and mortality, countries should plan for a continued roll-out of #COVID19vaccines.

Efforts should focus on protecting older adults & other vulnerable groups, such as those with underlying comorbidities & the immunocompromised.
According to #ECDC surveillance data, with every new wave of #COVID19 infection, individuals in older age groups are more likely to be hospitalised.

Data suggests persisting #SARSCoV2 transmission in EU/EEA & therefore, a continuous risk of severe disease for vulnerable groups.

Vaccination is key to protecting against serious #COVID19, including disease caused by #DeltaVariant.

With @EMA_News we urge 🇪🇺 citizens to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible!

Don't forget your 2nd dose.
Don't miss your 2nd dose.
With the increasing circulation of the #DeltaVariant in EU/EEA, #EMA & #ECDC strongly encourage those who are eligible for vaccination but have not yet been vaccinated to start and complete the recommended #COVID19 vaccination schedule soon.
Full vaccination with any of the approved vaccines = a high level of protection against severe disease and death.

The highest level of protection is achieved after enough time (7-14 days) after the last dose.…

Joint #ECDC, @EFSA_EU and #EURL Lm report: European Listeria typing exercise (ELiTE).

A cross-sectorial study identifies strong link between human #listeriosis clusters and ready-to-eat fish products.

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

1/ #COVID19 sprider sig fortfarande i Sverige. Även om sjukdomsfallen sjunkit över sommaren så ser vi lite ökad spridning redan nu. I länder såsom #Frankrike ökar smittan på ett oroande sätt, och vi måste vara förberedda för en liknande utveckling här…

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites" Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)… Image
People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
(for one week, as of now)
