And Bloomberg News Agency reported on Sunday that the average vaccination process around the world is currently 32.9 million doses, compared to an average of 8 million doses per day last December.
As of Saturday, enough doses have been given to fully vaccinate 24.9 percent of the world’s population, but the distribution is uneven.
“Countries and regions with the highest incomes are vaccinated 30 times faster than those with the lowest incomes,” according to the agency.
She added: “Globally, this is an alarmingly slow level of vaccination…at the current pace of 32.9 million doses per day, it may take another year to achieve a high level of global immunity.”

In second place came the European Union, which received 450 million doses, during which 57.5 percent of the population of the bloc received the first dose and 46.5 percent of the two doses.
