A quarter of the adults residing in the EU have received their first doses of vaccine from coronavirus. Ursula von der Leyen, the President of the European Commission reported that on Twitter.

Earlier, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus claimed that the Covax initiative will need a further $ 35-45 billion over the course of next year to ensure most adults are immunised. According to him, the global situation with the distribution of vaccines is still extremely uneven. More than 49 million vaccine doses have been delivered through Covax so far. Covax is co-led by the WHO, the Global Vaccine Alliance (Gavi) and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (Cepi), with the UN children's fund, Unicef, as key implementation partner. Sweden is the latest country to donate to that pot, pledging one million AstraZeneca doses in early May.
