GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: US administers more than 57 million Covid vaccinations

By Paul Dennis

22 February

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 111,434,000, with more than 2,467,000 deaths and 74,827,000 recoveries.

The US, India, and Brazil lead the world in confirmed Covid-19 cases, respectively.

However, the order within the top three might change soon, as Brazil continues to close in on India for the second leading place.

Outside of these three countries, Europe remains heavily impacted, with the UK, Russia, France, Spain, Italy, Turkey, and Germany rounding out the top of worldwide confirmed cases in that order.

In terms of vaccinations, the US has administered the most doses thus far with over 57,737,000 shots and is followed by China, the UK, India, and Israel.

Israel leads the world in doses administered per 1,000 people, followed by the United Arab Emirates.

Sunday marked one year since the first locally transmitted case in the west appeared in Italy.

On a more positive note, Covid-19 related hospitalizations in the US reached their lowest levels since November on Sunday, according to the Department of Health Services.

This news follows the downward trend of new cases in the country since the middle of January.

Despite this positive news, Dr. Anthony Fauci warns that Americans may need to continue to wear masks into 2022, despite significant advances in the US vaccination campaign in the last few weeks.
