Pyongyang. On the one hand, while in developed countries, additional doses have been given after completing the normal dose of anti-corona vaccine, there are three countries in the world where vaccination has not even started yet. These countries are – North Korea, Burundi and Eritrea. The surprising thing here is that despite being a friend of China, there is no vaccine in North Korea yet. Significantly, more than five billion doses have been given worldwide so far. Of these five billion doses, about 40 percent (1.96 billion) are given in China. 589 million doses have been given in India and 363 million in America. These are the three countries where the highest dosages have been imposed.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is the leader among countries with a population of over one million, with 179 doses given per 100 numbers. This means that about 75 percent of the population there has been fully vaccinated. On the other hand, three countries – Burundi, Eritrea and North Korea – have not even started vaccination campaigns yet.
However, most of the poor countries have also started vaccination now, mainly after the introduction of COVAX scheme, but their vaccination ratio is very unequal compared to developed countries. To understand, high-income countries have given 111 doses to their population of 100, as defined by the World Bank, while low-income countries have only 2.4 doses to a population of 100. Vaccines in these poor countries have recently started vaccination programs after some rich countries donated them.

Sub-Saharan Africa’s most populous country – the Democratic Republic of the Congo has received 0.1 doses per 100 population, 0.4 doses in Tanzania, 1.9 doses in Nigeria and only 2.0 doses per 100 population in Ethiopia. These are among the least vaccinated countries in the world. Globally, where 64 doses have been given for a population of 100, in the continent of Africa, only 6.5 doses have been received for a population of 100 so far. Which is only one tenth of the world average.
