WHO expressed concern in a statement last night. While new infections increase " one week on the other ", nearly 90% of African countries will not reach the global goal of vaccinating one-tenth of their population by September. At least 225 million doses of vaccines are necessary urgently so that the majority of countries can respect this deadline.

Friday, the number of people who received a first dose of VVID-19 vaccine on a level of the planet exceeded 2.5 billion according to a statement of AFP from official sources. And this Sunday, June 20, China claims more than one third: 1.01 billion according to the Ministry of Health.

It also means that Beijing has already managed to inject a first dose to more than two-thirds of its population. And even if we do not know the exact number of completely vaccinated Chinese, the country seems on track to keep its promise from vaccinating 70% of its population by the end of the year.

It will have a little time for the Chinese vaccination campaign to take flight. The very rigorous management of the country's epidemic crisis had eradicated almost completely the country's coronavirus for more than a year. Thanks to the mandatory quarantines, massive screenings and displacement control applications, the rare officially declared positive cases came for most abroad and could be controlled quickly.

Only about 5% of Taiwanese 23.5 million received at least one injection so far, orders were dela

But it was without counting on a proactive policy of the Chinese government and the country's businesses to convince the population to be stung, particularly emphasizing national solidarity and their duty of citizen. In some districts of Beijing, the vaccination rate was displayed to motivate the latest recalcitrant. Elsewhere, vouchers were exchanged or eggs against a dose of vaccine. And then there has also been this appearance of a few positive cases in the populated province of Guangdong, in the south of China, which recalled the possibility of an epidemic resurgence.

To achieve this billion first doses, China has managed alone, thanks to its four allowed vaccines: that of the Sinovac Private Laboratory, two of the Sinopharm Public Giant and one of the pharmaceutical company Cansino Biologics . To those could add that of Pfizer-Biontech who awaits a green light of the authorities in the coming months after the signing of a production agreement with a local partner.

After being the starting point of the pandemic and a management start for the least opaque in the winter of 2020, China now shines with its insolent success, at least one facade, while many parts of the World, like Brazil, which has just exceeded half a million deaths, remain hard hit by the virus.
