Every second adult was vaccinated
The UK has reached the 30 million vaccine milestone
More than half of adults in the UK were reported to have received the corona vaccine earlier this week. Now the country has reached another milestone: more than 30 million vaccines have been administered.
More than 30 million doses of Govt vaccine have been distributed across the UK. This is shown by government data, according to the British “Metro”. As of Sunday evening, the first dose of the Govt vaccine was 27,997,976 and the second dose was 2,281,384 nationwide.
British Health Secretary Matt Hancock thanked everyone involved in the vaccination campaign on Twitter. He writes: “More than 30 million vaccines have now been shipped across the UK. The vaccine campaign shows Britain’s best – thanks to the team involved.” He also praised the “fantastic work” and “tremendous team effort” of over 1.8 million corona tests last Sunday.
Low corona mortality
According to the “Metro” report, the lowest daily corona deaths have been reported on Sunday, with 16 people dying from the virus since September 13, according to further government data. The number of deaths recorded over the weekend will be lower due to delays in recording data. In the previous 24 hours, 440 people were hospitalized with the virus, bringing the total number of corona patients to 6,162. Of these, 830 require a ventilator.
All adults should be vaccinated by July 31
Earlier this week it was reported that more than half of adults in the UK have now received their first dose of the corona vaccine. The government wants to vaccinate all adults in the country by July 31.
Despite the positive outlook, Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned Britain that “there should be no illusions” that the third wave “will not wash over our shores”. He expects the UK to soon realize the effects of the tidal wave that has already forced many countries in Europe to re-establish austerity measures.
