Dr. Hans Kluge, World Health Organization regional director for Europe, is all praises for Spain’s handling of the COVID vaccination during his meeting with Spain’s Minister of Health Carolina Darias on 8 November. With 90% of the target population (over 12 years of age) already fully vaccinated, Spain has made quite a record. And yet, Kruger notes that the country isn’t sleeping on its laurels. Instead, "Spain, despite having a very high level of vaccination, continues to put pressure on the virus and does not give up despite the [admirable] figures" it has achieved.
A SEVENTY PERCENT AVERAGE. That’s the part of the EU population that got fully vaccinated today 31 August 2021. Over 256 million adults (aged 18 years and above). A crucial milestone. Says the President of the European Commission: "The EU's strategy of moving forward together is paying off and putting Europe at the vanguard of the global fight against COVID-19.” The EU is leading the world in multilateral response to the pandemic
