– France: Green light for preventive treatment –

French health officials have approved the preventive use of antibody therapy against Govt-19, in bodies that are resistant to the vaccine, as they present a higher risk of the severe form.

Evusheld is a synthetic antibody therapy developed by the Astrogeneca Laboratory. Evusheld aims to act on the same principle of immunization before the onset of the disease, unlike most anti-govt antibody therapies, which are aimed at preventing patients who have already been hospitalized from the most severe form.

– Austria: Mobilization against compulsory vaccination –

About 44,000 protesters gathered in central Vienna on Saturday, after several weekend protests already in the country, condemning the imprisonment of those who refused to be vaccinated and vaccinated against Govt-19, according to police.

In all, 24 separate meetings were planned in the Austrian capital, with the far-right FPÖ party organizing “a mega-demonstration” especially near the Hofburg Palace.

– Nearly 5.3 million people died –

The epidemic has killed at least 5.29 million people worldwide since the end of 2019, according to a report released by AFP on Saturday from official sources.

The death toll was 796,765 more than in Brazil (616,691), India (475,128), Mexico (296,385) and Russia (288,351), the worst country in the world.

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that the number of epidemics in the world could be two to three times higher, taking into account the high number of deaths directly and indirectly associated with Govt-19.
