Jumptuit Datacast: While Israel has vaccinated 40 percent of its population, US has vaccinated a larger share of its population per capita than Europe/
Donald Leka, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Jumptuit Media Inc. launched today its new platform comparing the vaccine distribution data across regions. Last month the company announced the unveiling of Jumptuit Datacasts, “a transparent new medium for receiving information on important trending global events.” Award Winning television presenter and journalist, Claire Leka, anchors the Datacast Team. It went live today with this story:
While the small, highly-advanced countries of Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are rapidly vaccinating their populations, larger advanced countries are facing challenges of manufacturing and distributing vaccines at scale. The US is fully vaccinating its citizens at a faster rate than the European Union (EU). The EU’s vaccine rollout has turned into a crisis due to a shortage of COVID-19 vaccine doses. Over 90 million doses of the Covid 19 vaccine have been administered across 56 countries since mid-December according to the CDC. That’s only a fraction of the global population of nearly 8 billion people.
Israel has vaccinated 40 percent of its population of 9 million and could reach herd immunity by mid-year the fastest pace in the world. The United Arab Emirates like Israel has a small population and universal health care system. The gulf nation has vaccinated nearly one-fifth of its 10 million people already but countries of scale are lagging due to inherent logistical challenges from the standpoint of population size and geography.
The US has vaccinated a larger share of its population per capita than Europe which is struggling with vaccine shortages and an escalating dispute with vaccine maker Astra Zeneca which has slashed its production by 60 percent because of manufacturing problems at its plant in Belgium Spain has partly suspended vaccinations due to lack of doses.
