To date, over 2.2 billion have been given worldwide Vaccines of the corona virus. More than a third of them are in China, which leads in the rate of immunization and is responsible for about half of the daily number of vaccinated in the world. The plague may have started in China, but a year ago it seemed that the great East Asian power Succeeded Take control of her, at least according to the data she reports to the world. Thus, the vaccination operation there is a preventative measure designed to thwart the possibility that the epidemic will spread again.

The problem is that findings beginning to flow from countries in South America and the Persian Gulf paint an unencouraging picture regarding the effectiveness of Chinese vaccines. Their hasty approval process seems to have been to their detriment: the spread of Chinese vaccines began even before the third phase of clinical trials ended, and sometimes even before it began.

Bahrain was one of the first countries in the world to start vaccinating its residents, even before the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first vaccines of the companies Pfizer and Moderna. Already in early December Began The princesses in the Persian Gulf distribute to its residents the vaccine of the Chinese company Sinopharm and soon reached a rate of immunization similar to Israel – 56 percent Vaccinated in two doses.

Nevertheless Bahrain is now suffering Sickness sickness Another peaked at about 3,000 verified per day, out of a population of about 1.6 million. Having no choice, they re-imposed restrictions on the public to stop the spread of the virus. This is of course a certificate of poverty for the effectiveness of the Chinese vaccine and an illustration that in clinical research shortcuts should not be made. Authorities in Bahrain have announced that they will allow risk groups to accept Third impulse dose With the Pfizer vaccine, hoping to protect them and reduce morbidity.

United States: Meet goals

In the United States, on the other hand, the situation is improving. This week it was reported that 13 of the 50 states that make up the United States have already Reached the goal set by President Joe Biden when he called for the completion of the American Independence Day, on July 4, the vaccination of 70 percent of the adult population in at least one dose. There is still close to a month left until the deadline, so the immunization rate looks very impressive. Some states in the United States have already far exceeded the target, such as Hawaii, which has vaccinated more than 80 percent of its adult population. President Biden has even announced that his country Donate 500 million vaccine doses from Pfizer to the COVAX project of the World Health Organization, which distributes vaccines in poor countries.

Also, while in Israel vaccination of adolescents aged 12 and over Runs lazily, especially since the Department of Health has refrained from recommending it en masse, the Americans Warehouses with great vigor. Three weeks after Pfizer’s vaccine was approved for this age group, some 3.5 million teens in the United States have already received it. This week they have started giving the second dose and are already approaching a million teenagers who have completed the process and will reach full vaccination as soon as their immune system completes its response to the substance. The huge number of vaccinated teens is expected to provide vital information on vaccine efficacy and safety. In Israel, people are especially waiting for information about the rare side effect of myocarditis, which there is a fear that the vaccine Increases its incidence In young adults.

Precisely in the UK, which in December was the first country to start vaccinating its residents with Pfizer’s approved vaccines, Modern and Astra-Zenica, the situation is not exciting. The British reached a nice immunization rate of 60 per cent who received at least one dose and 40 per cent in two doses. This gap stems from the controversial policy pursued in the United Kingdom at the height of the wave of severe morbidity that swept it, as part of which it spaced the time between doses to allow more people to receive at least one dose.

Now, having already thought that they had managed to largely curb the virus, it began to spread there again The Indian variant (Delta variant). In recent weeks, the UK has seen a renewed rise in corona morbidity. Most patients are not vaccinated, but consider quite a few infections even among vaccinated in one dose. The new wave is a bit spoiling The trend of removing restrictions And the opening of the economy that has begun in the UK in recent weeks, but the good news – at least for us in Israel – is that according to The data Coming from the UK (not yet a scientific paper) it seems that the Indian virus may be gnawing immunity, but two dishes still protect well against it as well.
