If continued at the current pace, Belgium would need two and a half years to reach that number.
P5 years later. 4.8 years, to be exact: this is the time when 75% of the world’s population will be vaccinated against coronaviruses, according to new results from the Bloomberg Vaccination Tracker. At the current rate, Belgium will reach 75% in 2.5 years.
American media company Bloomberg’s tracker is based on official data from 87 countries and uses 75% of fully immunized people (who have received both doses) as the ultimate goal. Countries that have not been counted have not yet begun their vaccination campaigns or do not publish data. In total, more than 193 million doses have already been administered worldwide.
Compared to the previous week, the rate of vaccination in Belgium has slowed down. Our country ranks 32nd in terms of the number of doses administered per 100 inhabitants compared to 29th place last week. The government aims to have 70% of the population vaccinated by September. Therefore it will be necessary to speed up the process to fulfill this objective.
Unexpectedly, Israel remains the absolute leader with 46.6% of the population already receiving a single dose and 31.4% fully vaccinated. In Europe, the United Kingdom leads the way with 24.6% of the population already receiving at least one dose.
