India revealed that one billion doses of the Corona vaccine had been provided to its population, and that three-quarters of the population had been vaccinated with at least one dose of the vaccine against the Covid-19 epidemic.
India said that it gave the billionth dose of the Corona vaccine, after 6 months of a huge rise in the number of infections that raised fears of the collapse of the health system, according to AFP.
The Indian government indicated that about three-quarters of the population, amounting to 1.3 billion people, had received at least one dose, noting that about 30% of them had received the vaccine completely.
It is noteworthy that India witnessed a great peak in the outbreak of the Covid-19 epidemic in the months of last April and May, when it recorded more than 400,000 injuries and 4 thousand deaths daily, while hospitals faced a situation beyond their capacity and incinerators were filled with bodies.
India is the second country in the world to reach the distribution of one billion doses, after China, in which the number of those who received a dose of the vaccine reached more than 2.3 billion, according to figures issued by the Chinese government.
