Guest of franceinfo at 11 p.m. on Thursday March 25, epidemiologist Mircea Sofonea insists on the importance, for the countries of the European Union, of having a “common strategy” on the subject of vaccination against Covid-19.
The difficulties encountered by the European Union concerning the supply of doses of vaccine against Covid-19 was one of the main points addressed by Emmanuel Macron during his speech, Thursday evening March 25 at the Elysee ( Paris). “There must be a common strategy: mass vaccination, as quickly as possible and in a coordinated manner”, warns epidemiologist Mircea Sofonea, guest of Franceinfo at 11 p.m. Thursday evening. “If we only vaccinate certain areas and not others, we create the conditions for heterogeneity which will still allow the virus to circulate.”
“Efforts must be coordinated, because European countries are paying for the fact that they are territorially connected to each other. They are not islands. This means that to eliminate Covid-19, they need to act head-on , “ continues the researcher, lecturer at the University of Montpellier (Hérault).
