English; One of the Fastest Countries for Coronavirus Vaccine Immunization

UMMATIMES - More than half of adults in the UK have received their first injection of the coronavirus vaccine. This made Britain the country with one of the largest economies in the world to reach inoculation to that stage for the first time.

"The corona virus vaccine injection program is our way out of the Covid-19 pandemic," said British Health Minister Matt Hancock, Saturday, March 20, 2021.

With the introduction of the corona virus vaccine immunization program, it means that the UK is in the stage of loosening its lockdown and reopening its economy as planned. The corona virus vaccine injection program in the UK is even more advanced than other European Union countries and the United States.

Earlier on Friday, March 19, 2021, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson encouraged the British public to continue injecting the corona virus vaccine after nearly half of adults in Britain received their first injection of the corona virus vaccine.

Concern about the corona virus still surrounds the European Continent because positive cases of Covid-19 have risen in several countries on the Blue Continent, including Germany and France. A scientist on Saturday, March 20, 2021 warned the holiday season would be unusual for most of the British public this summer due to the risk of the entry of a new variant of Covid-19.

Health Minister Hancock said Britain must remain vigilant even though plans to ease lockdowns are still on track. The UK plans to gradually allow shops, pubs and restaurants to resume operations on April 12, 2021.

"There is no sign that we will have trouble making progress as planned," said Hancock.

The UK, among others, uses the corona virus vaccine made by AstraZeneca and Pfizer. Britain is one of the fastest countries in the world to immunize a corona virus vaccine. Apart from the UK, other countries that are also speeding up in immunizing the corona virus vaccine are Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Chile.
