In the UK, more than 20 million of the 66 million residents now have at least one dose of the vaccine to protect against Govt-19.

In the UK, more than 20 million of the 66 million residents now have at least one dose of the vaccine to protect against Govt-19. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Sunday that this was “the greatest national achievement.” He thanked the “tireless work” of the health workers involved in the vaccination campaign. Meanwhile, experts are concerned about the discovery of a Brazilian corona mutant in the United Kingdom.

Commenting on the progress of the vaccine campaign, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: “We have a long way to go, but we are making great progress.” He wanted to say “thank you to every person” who was given the injection. Vaccination is the path that leads “all of us” from infection.

As of Sunday, 20,089,551 people in the UK had received at least one dose of the corona vaccine, according to the government. By mid-February, the country had already reached the interim target of vaccinating 15 million people who could be affected by severe Govt-19 diseases. All adults in the country must receive the vaccine offer by the end of July.

Globally, the vaccination rate is higher in Israel and the United Arab Emirates than in Great Britain. So far, about 5.01 million of Germany’s 83 million people have received at least one corona injection.

Positive news about the progress of the vaccine in Great Britain on Sunday revealed the corona variant that was first discovered in Brazil, which is thought to be more dangerous than the wild virus. A total of six people in the UK have been diagnosed with the mutation, health officials said on Sunday. The whereabouts of one of the victims are not clear because there is no important contact information.

The mutant, first discovered in the northern Brazilian city of Manaus, is considered particularly contagious. It is also unclear whether existing corona vaccines will work against them.

With more than 122,000 corona deaths, Great Britain is one of the worst affected countries in the world. Since the end of January, daily new infections and deaths have dropped significantly. On Sunday, authorities reported 6,035 new infections and 144 deaths from the corona virus. The current lock is to be gradually raised from March to the end of June.
