UAE has administered over 5 million COVID-19 jabs: Authorities

Over Shs 2 trillion needed to immunize all Ugandans against covid-19

Japan outlined a cautious coronavirus vaccine rollout Tuesday, a day before inoculations begin, with the minister overseeing the process admitting he had "no idea" how much of the population will be vaccinated by this summer's Olympics.

According to a court ruling, Kong and his team made a profit of 18 million yuan ($2.78 million) by putting saline solution or mineral water in syringes and hawking them as Covid vaccines since August previous year.

"With a collaborative effort of the health sector and the commitment of the UAE community, we announce today that we have exceeded 5 million doses since the launch of the national vaccine campaign of COVID-19", the UAE's National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority said in a tweet.

In the coming weeks, vaccines will be supplied to more countries in Africa, Latin America, CARICOM and the Pacific Island states, MEA Spokesperson Anurag Srivastava had said. Kono said it was necessary to address the concerns of many Japanese about safety in a country known for low vaccine confidence. "So at the end of the day we might have started slower but we think it will be more effective".

An employee inspects syringes of the vaccine for COVID-19 produced by SinoVac at its factory in Beijing on September 24, 2020. "I am very relieved that the vaccine has finally arrived", said the hospital's director, who spoke on condition of anonymity under official policy.

About 3.7 million more medical workers are scheduled to be inoculated after the initial group. People with underlying health issues, as well as caregivers at nursing homes and other facilities, will be next, before the general population receives its turn.

Authorities say that they arrested as many as 80 people involved in the alleged scam, including some of the people Kong Mou and his associates sold the vaccine to, believing that those individuals in turn sold them again for a profit, despite knowing that they were fake.
