Europe's public health response to the Covid-19 pandemic has been criticized as slow and ineffective. Much of the developing world is awaiting the start of vaccination campaigns. Public authorities from the UN-WHO to the EU, national governments, regions and municipalities are struggling to cope with the pandemic.
