To get rid of the corona epidemic, a rapid vaccination campaign is going on around the world. So far 33 percent of the world’s population has been given a single dose of the vaccine.
This has been revealed in the data of Our World in Data website. This website is a project of the World non-profit Global Change Data Lab and is based at Oxford University.
According to this, only 1.6 percent of people in low-income countries have received a single dose.
Five billion doses of vaccine have been administered worldwide
According to the website, about five billion doses of the vaccine have been administered so far, with an average of 36.2 million doses per day worldwide.
Of these, the highest 3.38 billion doses have been applied in the countries of the continent of Asia alone. In Asia also, the highest two billion doses have been applied in China.
Similarly, more than 60 crore doses have been installed in India. While the United States has given 30.65 million doses.
Worldwide, two billion people received both doses of the vaccine.
So far 20.14 crore cases of corona infection have been reported globally and out of these 40.47 lakh people have died. So far, 1.96 billion people have been given both doses of the vaccine and 60.30 million have been given one dose so far.
UAE tops in vaccination
The data shows that 65.14 doses have been given for every 100 people worldwide.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) occupies the top position in this regard. Here 179.25 doses have been given for every 100 people.
This figure is over 100 because this data is for a single dose and some vaccine recipients have taken doses of vaccines other than those approved in the UAE.
43 doses given for every 100 people in India
Canada has given 138.85 doses per 100 people, followed by China (138.75), the United Kingdom (132.09) and the US (108.75). India has lagged far behind the global average. Here 43.38 doses are given for every 100 people.
25 percent of people worldwide received both doses of the vaccine
Worldwide 24.91% of people have been given both doses of the vaccine, while 8.05% have received a single dose. In the UAE, 74% of the population has received both and 11% have received a single dose.
Similarly Canada has 65.92% of the population with both and seven percent of the population, in the UK 62% of the population and 8.2% to one, in the US 51% to both and 9.2% to one, in Australia 25.64% to both and 18.84% to the population. A dose has been received.
In India, only 9.8 percent of the population has received both doses.
The situation of complete vaccination in India is extremely critical. So far, only 9.8 percent of the population has received both doses and 24 percent has received one dose. Similarly, in New Zealand, 21.61 percent have received both and 17.11 percent have received a single dose.
America has the highest number of people taking both doses of vaccine
The US leads the way in terms of the number of people who have taken both doses of the vaccine. So far 172.17 million people have been given a single dose and 200 million people have been given a single dose.
In India 136.26 million people received both and 331.87 million received one, in the UK 42.23 million received both, 5.63 million had one, Canada 25.10 million had both, 2.66 million had one, in the UAE 7.42 million received both and 1.07 million received a single dose Is.
In poor countries only 15 million people got the vaccine
Globally, the division of income is clearly visible in the vaccination campaign.
The reason for this is that in low-income countries only 1.6 percent of the people i.e. 1.53 crore people have received a single dose of the vaccine.
In comparison, 1.37 billion people in high-income countries, 2.73 billion in upper-middle-income countries and 1.01 billion in lower-middle-income countries have received doses of the corona vaccine.
Global COVAX initiative proved ineffective
Anticipating inequalities in vaccination, the World Health Organization (WHO) launched the COVAX initiative to ensure equitable access to vaccines in low-income countries.
However, COVAX does not prevent wealthy countries from making deals with vaccine manufacturers. In such a situation, these countries have been at the forefront of getting the vaccine. Some wealthy countries, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK, have also received COVAX doses.
Kovax sent more doses to the UK than to Africa in June
Notably in June, Kovax sent 530,000 doses to the UK, more than double the dose sent to Africa that month. Meanwhile, countries like Haiti, Syria, Venezuela have sent even very few doses of the promised.
