To date, 5 billion doses of Corona vaccine have been injected into people around the world, yet the World Health Organization (WHO) remains concerned about how the vaccine is distributed in different countries.
According to the data «Our World in DataTo date, nearly 25 percent of the world’s population has been completely vaccinated against Covid-19, led by researchers at Oxford University. About 33.5 million doses of the vaccine are given daily.
Malta tops the list in terms of vaccination rates, although it does not have a large population. Overall, 79.5 percent of the population is fully vaccinated, with just over 90 percent of the population over the age of 12.
Because children are not yet largely vaccinated against Covid-19, the best countries have vaccinated 70 to 80 percent of their population with two doses of the vaccine. Iceland, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates, for example, have all fully vaccinated about 75% of their population against the corona.
In contrast to such countries, vaccination rates are very low in some areas. For example, some countries, such as Yemen and Chad, have not yet been able to fully vaccinate 1% of their population.
As you can see in the picture below, the vaccine is not distributed fairly around the world, which is why the head of the World Health Organization criticizes rich countries for pre-purchasing large volumes of the vaccine as well as planning to start injecting a third dose of the vaccine.
The African continent, meanwhile, is in dire straits, with only 87 million doses of the vaccine being vaccinated in the region, less than 2 percent of all vaccinations worldwide.
Injecting more than 5 billion doses of corona vaccine in this relatively short period of time is a major achievement, but it has not stopped the epidemic from continuing. Since the start of vaccination, Corona has experienced several mutations, each of which has somehow worsened the state of the world.
The world is currently grappling with the delta strain, which may be controlled by injecting a third dose. However, rich countries have access to the third dose, and poor countries have difficulty even injecting a single dose of the vaccine.
