Canada lags behind the United States in vaccination rates

Desk Report :: Canada has overtaken the United States in the rate of vaccination against the coronavirus. The North American country is ahead of its neighbor in the application of the second dose of the corona tick.

As of July 18, 48.45 per cent of Canadians had taken both doses of the corona vaccine, according to the BBC. On the other hand, the rate among the citizens of the United States is 47.05 percent.

Meanwhile, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said this week that Canada could open its borders to tourists if vaccinations continue at the current pace. The US-Canada border has been closed for about 18 months since the Corona epidemic began.

However, the United States has failed to meet its immunization targets. The United States has set a goal of vaccinating 80 percent of American adults by July 4, according to President Joe Biden. However, about 6 percent of Americans 18 or older have received at least one vaccine during this time.

The United States is the most affected by coronavirus. So far 3 crore 49 lakh 53 thousand 917 people have been affected by corona and 6 lakh 24 thousand 613 people have died in the country. The country is working to bring more people under vaccination to prevent the Corona epidemic.

According to a recent report by the Canadian Ministry of Health, more than 6 per cent of people over the age of 12 in the country have received at least one dose of the Covid vaccine. In addition, about 48 percent of people over the age of 12 have taken the full dose of the vaccine.

The Canadian government announced last Thursday that it would allow large pleasure boats to dock off their coast from next November. However, in that case everyone on the pleasure boats has to follow the hygiene rules and necessary instructions in this regard.

Justin Trudeau said last week that foreign tourists who have not been vaccinated will not be allowed to enter Canada for the time being. He said the decision was taken so that the progress made in various measures to prevent the infection would not be wasted.
