In 2020, the pandemic of the new crown epidemic has caused a huge impact on the global economy and society. In order to overcome the epidemic as soon as possible, the global vaccine research and development teams are racing against the clock to launch the new crown vaccine competition. With the recent positive results of the third phase of some vaccine trials, many countries around the world have begun large-scale vaccination work.
Through sorting, more than 40 countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, Israel, etc. have begun to vaccinate the new crown vaccine overseas. Most of them have been vaccinated from December 2020. vaccination was announced one after another months later, so what is the progress now? Next, take an inventory.
First of all, from the perspective of the new crown vaccination ratio, Israel can be said to have taken the lead. In January10On the day of January, the proportion of the number of people vaccinated against the new crown in Israel has reached 20.93%. In other words, the country has vaccinated nearly 21%of the country’s population with the new crown vaccine. It is understood that Israel started the new crown vaccination work on December 20, 2020, less than one month ago, showing that its vaccination work is fast.
According to the analysis of Wang Jin, associate professor of the Middle East Institute of Northwestern University, Israel’s sound medical system and strong crisis awareness are important reasons. In addition, Israel has also paid higher fees for priority access to vaccines. According to officials from the Israeli Ministry of Health, the cost of the Pfizer vaccine purchased by Israel is as high as US$62 per dose, while the price of the vaccine in the United States is only US$19.5. It can be seen that Israel has also taken the blood.
Of course, another reason for the high rate of vaccination in Israel that cannot be ignored is that the country has a small population of only 8.47 million. From the perspective of the number of vaccinations, as of January 10, the number of people vaccinated against the new crown in Israel was only 181million. Therefore, it is relatively easy to increase the proportion of vaccines in a country with a small population.
There are similar situations in the UAE and Bahrain, as of January10The population vaccinations in these two countries are 10.99%and5. 25%, second only to Israel, ranking second and third in the world. But the population of the UAE is less than 10 million, and the population of Bahrain is only 1.64 million. The populations of the two countries are not large.
It is worth mentioning that both the UAE and Bahrain are China’s vaccine support countries. It is understood that the UAE officially approved China’s Sinopharm Group to register and market the new inactivated vaccine developed by China on December 9, 2020; and Four days later (December 3), Bahrain also officially approved the registration and marketing of the vaccine, which shows that the Chinese vaccine has won the trust of these Gulf countries.
Except for a few countries such as Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, most countries have been carrying out COVID-19 vaccination, but the vaccination rate is less than 2%. The next step is how to speed up the vaccination process.
Of course, in countries with large populations like the United States and China, although the current vaccination rate is not high, But judging from the number of vaccinations, it is far ahead. In the United States, as of January8day, its population vaccination rate was only2.02%, but The vaccinated population has reached 66910,000,ranked second in the world.
This is not difficult to understand. After all, the United States has become the “epicenter” of the world epidemic, and the cumulative number of confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia has exceeded 20 million. In order to obtain the new crown vaccine as soon as possible, as early as mid-May 2020, the United States launched the”curvature speed action”, planning to obtain more than 300 million doses of the new crown vaccine by June this year; on December 8 last year,”Know the King” class=”entity-word” data-gid=”1547268″>Trump even signed an order requiring the new crown vaccine to be”America first.” Therefore, it is conceivable that the number of people vaccinated in the United States is the largest.
However, even though the vaccinated population in the United States has reached 6.69 million, it is still far below its The goal of”vaccinating 20 million people by 2021″ was set earlier. I am afraid that the United States is also very difficult to think that speeding up the vaccine will be a problem.
In fact, European and American countries generally have low willingness to vaccinate. According to Ipsos global opinion poll data, only 67%of Americans are willing to receive the new crown vaccine, while Russians have the lowest willingness to vaccinate, only 54%; in addition, vaccination in Germany, Italy, France and other countries The willingness is less than 70%. Relatively speaking, the United Kingdom is the country with the highest willingness to vaccinate in Europe and the United States, with more than 85%;ButAs of January 3, the United Kingdom has a total of 132Ten thousand people have been vaccinated with the new crown vaccine, but the coverage rate is only 1.9%4%, which is still at a low level.
Although high-income countries such as Europe and the United States previously occupied early vaccine production capacity in the vaccine”snatch battle”, in addition to the United States and Britain, other European and American countries The vaccinated population is less than 1 million. In the words of experts, Europe and the United States are really not good at fighting the epidemic, and they are number one in the”war”.
So what is the situation in China? Presumably this is also the issue that everyone is most concerned about. On the last day of 2020, China’s first new crown vaccine-the new crown inactivated vaccine developed by Sinopharm was approved.” Conditional listing”. Before this, the new crown vaccine has been urgently used in Jiangsu, Anhui, Beijing and other regions in China. According to relevant data, As of 1Month9On the day, the number of people vaccinated against the new crown in my country has reached strong>900million,ranked first in the world.
Relatively speaking, the current domestic epidemic is controllable as a whole, and the main focus of epidemic prevention is Imports from abroad do not have such urgent vaccination needs in other countries. Therefore, special populations and high epidemic areas in my country may prioritize vaccination to reduce risks. Based on this, the proportion of population inoculation in my country is not high, at 0.63%.
But it is worth mentioning that the National Health Commission has previously stated that China’s new crown vaccine will be provided free of charge. It is not difficult to imagine that with the gradual development of domestic vaccination work, the proportion of the vaccinated population in my country will increase rapidly in the future. What do you think about this?
