Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: 245 Million Covid Vaccine Doses Have Been Given in 107 Countries” – below is their description.
The biggest vaccination campaign in history is underway. More than 245 million doses have been administered across 107 countries, according to data collected by Bloomberg. The latest rate was roughly 6.79 million doses a day.
In the U.S., more Americans have now received at least one dose than have tested positive for the virus since the pandemic began. So far, 76.9 million doses have been given. In the last week, an average of 1.82 million doses per day were administered.
The first stage of the U.S. rollout fell short of federal projections as vaccinations proceeded unevenly across the states. After focusing first on hospitals and other institutional health-care settings, the next phase of vaccinations will draw more on pharmacies and health clinics—places where vaccines are more traditionally administered—and will broaden the pool of people eligible to get the shots. Some states are turning sport stadiums and theme parks into mass vaccination centers.
In the U.S., the latest vaccination rate is 1,817,502 doses per day, on average. At this rate, it will take an estimated 7 months to cover 75% of the population with a two-dose vaccine.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
