'Roughly 10% of global population' vaccinated

Data compiled by researchers show that 10.1 percent of the world population had received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine as of May 25.

The data is available on the site Our World in Data, which is operated by researchers at the University of Oxford and others. Information for countries and regions where verifiable numbers are unavailable is not included.

The site shows that 62.9 percent of the total population in Israel has received at least one dose, 56.5 percent in Britain, 56.2 percent in Mongolia, 52.8 percent in Canada, 49.1 percent in the United States, 40.7 percent in Germany, 35.9 percent in Italy, 35.1 percent in France, 20.1 percent in Brazil and 7.7 percent in South Korea.

It also provides data on the share of people who have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.
The share is 59.2 percent in Israel, 43.1 percent in Bahrain, 40.9 percent in Chile, 39.2 percent in the United States, 34.8 percent in Britain, 17.6 percent in Italy, 15 percent in France, 14.7 percent in Germany, 9.9 percent in Brazil and 3.8 percent in South Korea.

Vaccination inequality has become a problem in the global fight against the coronavirus, with mainly developing countries having less access to vaccines.

The World Health Organization is calling on member states to support a push to vaccinate at least 10 percent of the population of every country by September.
