translated from Spanish: Covid-19 vaccinations are accelerated worldwide

The campaign to defeat the coronavirus accelerated on Monday in various parts of the world: Britain began distributing the second vaccine in its possession although authorities in France and other parts of Europe were criticized for the slow distribution and delays. Meanwhile, in the United States government officials reported that vaccinations accelerated markedly after a slow onset. Dr Anthony Fauci, the country’s leading infectious disease expert, said that over the weekend 1.5 million vaccines were given in 72 hours, which put the total number of vaccinated in the last three weeks at 4 million. On Monday, Britain became the first country to start applying the COVID-19 vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford, intensifying its inoculation campaign when a lift in the infection rate is awarded to a new and apparently more contagious variant of the virus. Brian Pinker, an 82-year-old patient on dialysis, was given the first vaccine at Oxford University Hospital. «Now I can really long to celebrate my 48th wedding anniversary,» he said in a statement. The vaccination programme in Britain began on 8 December with the vaccine developed by Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech.Elsewhere, vaccination efforts have taken time to take off. France’s cautious strategy has apparently backfired, with only a few hundred people vaccinated after the first week and rekindled outrage over the government’s pandemic management. The slow distribution was awarded to mismanagement, staff shortages during the festivities and a complicated consent policy developed to adapt to the French’ skepticism of the vaccine.» It’s a state scandal,» Jean Rottner, president of France’s Gran-Est region, told France-2 television. «Being vaccinated becomes more complicated than buying a car.» The Dutch government has also been criticized for taking the time to deliver the vaccines. His health ministry said he will advance the start of the campaign two days by Wednesday. Meanwhile, the European Union defended its strategy as criticisms for the slow distribution of vaccines in the 27-nation bloc with 450 million people are growing. EU Commission spokesman Eric Mamer said the main problem «is a matter of production capacity, a problem that everyone faces.»
