8 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 173,640,000, with more than 3,730,000 deaths and over 124,000,000 recoveries.

Western European countries such as France, Italy and the UK are reporting over 4,200,000 total confirmed cases.

The UK is leading in administration of vaccine doses with around 1,000 doses per 1,000 people.

Italy and France follow with 631, and 502 doses per 1,000 people, respectively.

In terms of fully vaccinated population taking into account vaccines that require two doses, the UK has reached around 40% of the population vaccinated, Italy around 22%, and France around 15%.

Czech Republic has announced that it will reopen its borders to EU and Serbian citizens on 21 June.

This comes after the government also decided to increase capacity on audiences at cultural events to 1,000 indoors and 2,000 outdoors.

This is a step in reopening as earlier this year, in January, the country was recording around 1,700 new cases of Covid-19 per million population.
