Turkey in world’s top 10 for most COVID-19 vaccinations

Turkey in world’s top 10 for most COVID-19 vaccinations

More than 3.88 billion coronavirus vaccines doses have been administered worldwide so far, with Turkey ranking among the top 10 countries for jabs given, according to Our World in Data, a tracking website affiliated with Oxford University, on Monday.

China, where the coronavirus originated in late 2019, ranks first globally with more than 1.55 billion vaccine jabs given across the country. India follows it with nearly 433.2 million jabs, according to available data.

The list continues with mostly Western countries, with the US having administered 341.82 million shots, Brazil 131.97 million, Germany 89.39 million, the UK 83.72 million, Japan 77.73 million, and France 68.06 million.

Turkey has so far administered more than 66.81 million vaccine shots, making it ninth worldwide, while over 39.67 million people have received one jab.

As COVID-19 vaccines are generally given in two separate doses per person, the count of administered vaccines does not mean that the same number of people has been vaccinated.

Since December 2019, the pandemic has claimed more than 4.16 million lives across the world, with an excess of 194.3 million cases reported, according to the US’ Johns Hopkins University.
