FRANKFURT: An official at the European Union’s drugs regulator said today the Covid-19 pandemic was not over, contradicting US president Joe Biden, and that a planned vaccination campaign in the region during the cold season was key to fighting it.

“We in Europe still consider the pandemic as ongoing and it’s important that member states prepare for rollout of the vaccines and especially the adaptive vaccines to prevent further spread of this disease in Europe,” the European medicines agency’s (Ema) chief medical officer Steffen Thirstrup told a media briefing, referring to vaccines targeting specific strains of the virus.

He was asked to comment on Biden’s remark in an interview broadcast on Sunday that “the pandemic is over”.

“I cannot obviously answer why President Biden came to that conclusion,” Thirstrup said.
