More than 172.37 million people worldwide have now been confirmed to be infected with the corona virus.
That’s according to a Reuters survey based on official data. According to the survey, more than 3.8 million people have died in connection with the virus since it was first detected in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. The United States has the most deaths, with nearly 600,000. There, 33.5 million infections have been detected – also the highest in the world. India ranks second in the number of cases, with Brazil third. However, the South American country has more deaths than India.
More than 137 million people in the United States are now fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). In total, more than 369 million doses have been delivered and about 299 million administered, it said. Nearly 170 million people have been vaccinated at least once, it said. There are 328 million people in the U.S.
The U.K., meanwhile, is looking to accelerate its vaccination program because of the Corona mutant Delta, according to a media report. People over the age of 40 are to receive their second vaccination within eight weeks of the first dose, the Telegraph reported. The usual interval between first and second vaccination is usually 12 weeks with AstraZeneca’s vaccine. People older than 25 are expected to receive a vaccination offer as early as next week. The UK had recently reported more than 6,000 new infections per day. The virus mutant delta, which first appeared in India, is now dominant in the UK.
