From Biontech to Valneva: An overview of the corona vaccines
On behalf of the 27 states, the EU Commission has so far concluded contracts with six vaccine manufacturers and thus secured around 2.3 billion doses of various products. More are to follow. An overview.
Great Britain wants to offer all adults a vaccination against the coronavirus by the end of July. “This will help us to protect those most at risk more quickly and to be able to relax restrictions,” Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in London on Saturday. To date, more than 17 million people in the UK have had a first vaccination – one in three adults. The next goal is to vaccinate everyone over 50. The government now wants to achieve this by mid-April, two weeks earlier than previously planned.
The so-called seven-day incidence was 126 at the weekend – more than twice as high as in Germany.
After severe side effects: Immunologists promote Astrazeneca vaccine
Despite the comparatively high number of vaccinations, the conservative government only wants to gradually relax the existing protection regulations in the country with more than 66 million inhabitants. Johnson said the path out of lockdown should be “cautious and phased”.
The Prime Minister wants to announce his plans for the first easing this Monday. In the future, some private meetings outside and individual visits to nursing homes should be possible again. Returning children to schools is also a top priority for the government.
Outbreak, lockdown, vaccine: One year of Corona in Germany
The first infection in Germany became known on January 27, 2020. We look back on a year of Corona.
The curve of new infections drops quite continuously. Most recently, the country counted 126 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the past seven days. In Germany, the seven-day incidence on Sunday was just over 60.
Vaccination progress: Over 770,000 vaccinations administered in Bavaria
The official number of corona deaths exceeded the threshold of 120,000 cases on Saturday – people who tested positive for the virus in the four weeks before their death. If you add all cases with Covid-19 on the death certificate, there were almost 130,000 corona deaths weeks ago. This makes the UK one of the worst hit countries in Europe.
Due to early and extensive orders, Great Britain has fewer delivery bottlenecks for vaccines than the states in the EU, where the country was no longer a part of last year. It wants to give excess vaccine doses to poorer countries – but only when the British are vaccinated.
The World Trade Organization (WTO) asked London to redistribute a certain share now.
