85% of French people vaccinated
As vaccination increases, cases tend to decrease. According to figures reported by the Ministry of Solidarity and Health this Sunday evening, about 85% of eligible French people (over 12 years of age) have been fully vaccinated. 50,844,346 people received at least one injection (ie 75.4% of the total population).
Worldwide, the COVID-19 pandemic has killed at least 4,843,739 people since the end of December 2019, according to a report installed by AFP at 10am GMT on Sunday from official sources.
More than 237.4 million cases of infection have been officially diagnosed since the start of the pandemic. Most patients recover, but the still poorly evaluated portion persists with symptoms for weeks or months.
United States of America, the most bereaved country
The United States is the worst-hit country by the pandemic with 713,224 deaths, followed by Brazil (601,011), India (450,589), Mexico (281,958) and Russia (216,415).
The WHO estimates that the pandemic’s toll could be two to three times higher, taking into account the high mortality rates directly and indirectly linked to COVID-19.
