UK Approves Pfizer's COVID-19 Vaccine for Mass Inoculation, US Registers 2 Lakh Cases In A Day, Russia Authorises Mass Vaccination Programme for Sputnik V

WORLD Team Latestly|

Britain on December 2 became the first country in the world to approve the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for use and said that it will be rolled. Britain had ordered 40 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine - enough for just under a third of the population as two shots of the jab are needed per person to gain immunity. Health Secretary Matt Hancock has set out how the vaccine will be rolled out around the country. The United States set a pair of alarming coronavirus records on December 2, surpassing 200,000 new infections and topping 100,000 COVID-19 patients hospitalised — the first time the country has reached either metric in a single day. The number of cases in the US has crossed the 14 million mark with nearly 3 lakh deaths. Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin on December 2 ordered authorities to begin mass vaccinations with the Sputnik V vaccine against the novel coronavirus from next week as the country recorded 589 new daily deaths from COVID-19.
