Cuba has administered 35,635,512 doses of its homegrown Soberana 02, Soberana Plus and Abdala vaccines, according to the MINSAP, according to data gathered until April 20.
Authorized experts have administered at least the first injection to 10,649,922 citizens, including those convalescing from Covid-19 (a disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus) with a single dose of Soberana Plus.
Of that total, 9,398,278 Cubans have already received a second dose, and the third jab has been administered to 9,091,894, while the booster dose has benefited 6,494,736 Cubans in selected territories and risk groups, the MINSAP added.
Since January 2022, Cuba has been leading the average number of doses administered daily per 100 inhabitants, registering 314.76, ahead of Chile (269.02), Singapore (255.47), China (230.05) and Brazil (199.28), according to the statistics site of the British University of Oxford, Our World in Data.
In this section, the university explains that all injections, including boosters, are counted individually and, as a person can receive more than one, the number per 100 can be more than 100.
With at least one dose, Cuba follows the United Arab Emirates, and ranks ahead of Brazil, the United States, Bangladesh, Indonesia, India, Mexico, Pakistan and Russia.
