  • We invite you to the online webinar Urgent message from West to East Europe: be prepared for an Omicron tsunami

    We invite you to the online COVID-19 Eastern Europe webinar:  “Urgent message from West to East Europe: be prepared for an Omicron tsunami”.
    Within the EU the new Omicron variant is causing an explosive new wave of infections, resulting in more restrictive measures being taken by many countries. This new wave is not so far evident in Eastern Europe, but the worry is surely that it may be only a matter of a few weeks before the same pattern emerges, possibly even more virulently given the lower rates of vaccination so far.
    The webinar will debate the current epidemiological developments, adequacy of vaccine supplies for the region, and restrictive measures introduced by the governments. It will also explore the economic impact of the pandemic and progress towards recovery, as well as its impact on political regimes in the region.
    The event will be open to audience participation in the Q&A session.
