Covid vaccine UAE: 69,142 doses administered in 24 hours
This takes the rate of doses per 100 people to 78.86.
The UAE has administered 69,142 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine in the past 24 hours.
The country's Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) said the total doses administered now stands at 7.79 million. This takes the rate of doses per 100 people to 78.86.
India, the “pharmacy of the world”, has put the brakes on exporting Covid-19 vaccines as it battles a new wave of infections at home and a faltering inoculation drive.
As a major supplier, the development is a blow to vital vaccination programmes in poorer countries under the Covax global inoculation initiative led by the World Health Organization and the Gavi alliance.
Abu Dhabi's Hope Consortium, however, has distributed over 20 million Covid-19 vaccine doses to 26 countries since it was formed late last year, authorities announced on Thursday.
The consortium, which was launched in Abu Dhabi in November 2020, is working towards a target of delivering 18 billion vaccines around the world by the end of next year.
