Despite the Covid vaccination campaign in the US, the number of infections and deaths from the corona is steadily increasing. A record 4,500 people died in the US from Corona on Tuesday. This is the highest number of deaths in a single day in the US since the epidemic began. With this, the death toll in America has exceeded four lakhs.
According to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the first dose of the Kovid vaccine has been given to more than 9 million people so far.
Talking about other countries, so far in Brazil, 8,324,294 people have been confirmed to be infected with Coronavirus and 207,095 people have died.
Similarly, Russia and Britain have registered 3,483,531 and 3,325,636 cases so far. Significantly, in January last year, the first case of coronavirus was reported in Wuhan, China, after which the virus created panic all over the world. At the same time, a team of the World Health Organization has also reached China, which will conduct research on corona cases.
The coronavirus first appeared in Wuhan city of China in December 2019. The death toll data compiled by Jones Hopkins University are comparable to the population of Brussels, Maize, and Vienna.
Significantly, the first 1 million people died in eight months, but the next 1 million people died in less than four months. These death toll figures have been reported by government agencies around the world, while the actual number of deaths due to the disease may be higher as many other causes of death were also reported in the early days of the epidemic.
Dr. Ashish Jha, an epidemiologist at Brown University's School of Public Health, said that many people have died. He said that the scientific community has done extraordinary work. In affluent countries like America, Britain, Israel, Canada, and Germany, work has been started to provide security to millions of people. He has been given at least one dose of the vaccine.
There are many countries where the vaccine has not reached. Many experts are speculating that this year could also be full in Iran, India, Mexico, and Brazil. Half of the people worldwide who died of Kovid-19 were from these countries.
The vaccination campaign is going on in rich countries but there are many obstacles in running this campaign in poor countries. These include poor health system, poor transport system, corruption, and lack of electricity to keep vaccines in the freezer.
Rich countries have bought most of the doses of the Kovid-19 vaccine. Kovacs, an UN-backed project launched to deliver vaccines to developing countries of the world, has been struggling with vaccines, funding, and logistical issues.
Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, head scientist of the World Health Organization, said that this year it is not possible to achieve the target of vaccinating 70 percent of the people of the world. He said that even if vaccination is given in some countries or places, it will not protect people from infection worldwide.
