The death toll from the corona virus rose to nearly 2 million worldwide on Friday. Although many countries have begun vaccinating to control the epidemic, poor and least developed countries have difficulty getting the vaccine. The corona virus was first reported in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. The Johns Hopkins University compiled death toll data comparable to the populations of Brussels, Corn and Vienna. Notably, the first million people died in eight months, but the next million died in less than four months. The death toll from the disease could be higher as many other causes of death were also known in the early days of the epidemic, according to government agencies around the world.

Dr Ashish Jha, an epidemiologist at Brown University’s School of Public Health, said many people had died. He said the scientific community has done a tremendous job. Work has begun to protect millions of people in affluent countries such as the United States, Britain, Israel, Canada and Germany. He has been given at least one dose of vaccine. There are many countries where the vaccine has not reached. Many experts predict that Iran, India, Mexico and Brazil could also be in trouble this year. Half of the world’s people who have died from Covid-19 are from these countries. Vaccination campaigns are underway in rich countries, but there are many barriers to campaigning in poor countries. These include poor sanitation, poor transportation, corruption, and a lack of electricity to keep vaccines in refrigerators.

Rich countries have bought most doses of the Covid-19 vaccine. Kovacs, a UN-backed project aimed at supplying vaccines to developing countries around the world, is fighting vaccine, funding and logistical issues. Dr Soumya Swaminathan, chief scientist at the World Health Organization, said it was not possible to achieve the goal of vaccinating 100 percent of the world’s population this year. He said that even if vaccinated in some countries or places, it would not protect people from global infections.
