[EN VIDÉO] #Coronavirus: 5 questions for a vaccine #More than 47 vaccines against the coronavirus are in clinical trials around the world. #Some have already advanced encouraging preliminary results. #So what can we expect from these future vaccines? #Will they allow us to find a normal life? #Five questions to see more clearly.

#Over 5 million doses of vaccine against the #Covid-19 have already been administered across the world. #But while some countries perform tens of thousands of injections per day, hoping to get out of the country as soon as possibleepidemic, #France seems to want to take its time and has only vaccinated a few dozen people. These differences are controversial and cannot be explained solely by a question of availability of doses.

#Israel: most advanced country in the world for vaccination

« #Within a month, 2.25 million people will have been vaccinated. #We can get out of coronavirus, reopen the economy, and do things that no other country in the world can do #Prime #Minister #Benjamin #Netanyahu boasted on #December 27. #Israel, which has already experienced three lockdowns, is the most advanced country in the world in matter of vaccination. The #Hebrew state thus administered the vaccine in just nine days to more than 643,600 people, out of a total of nine million inhabitants, or 7.4% of its population. #Vaccination is carried out 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the rate of 150,000 people per day.

#If #Israel can afford such a speed, it is because the state bought its doses 43% more expensive than the market price to be served as a priority, according to the local press. A perfectly assumed additional cost for public finances. ” #Each day in confinement costs a fortune destroying entire lives “, #Explains #Yishay #Falick, the director of a hospital in #Jerusalem.

#United #Kingdom: a campaign led at full speed

#Not only the country has started vaccination earlier than others, but the campaign is being carried out at a rapid pace. #More than 800,000 doses have already been injected since #December 8, or 1.18 people vaccinated per 100 inhabitants. #To further accelerate the pace, the country has just approved #AstraZeneca’s vaccine: some 100 million doses have been ordered, of which 4 million will be available in the coming days. #And like they can be stored in a normal fridge, this should greatly facilitate distribution. #According to #Health #Minister #Matt #Hancock, the UK is expected to be out of the epidemic in the spring.

#Germany: giant “vaccinodromes”

#With 78,000 people vaccinated in a few days, #Germany is far ahead of #France: its campaign began on #December 27. The country has installed more than 400 vaccination centers in airports or exhibition centers and concert halls. #However, the government is also criticized for its slowness. The main complaints across the #Rhine are logistical problems and delivery delays. The country has also accused #France half-heartedly of having wanted to promote orders from its national manufacturer #Sanofi, whose vaccine will ultimately not be available before the end of 2021 to the detriment of vaccines from #Pfizer and #Moderna. #Health #Minister #Jens #Spahn, however, assured that ” all #Germans wishing to be vaccinated will be able to do so by summer ».

#Bahrain: the entire population soon covered

#Bahrain, one of the first countries to approve #China’s #Sinopharm vaccine on #December 13 (#Pfizer’s also received emergency clearance), is one of the most advanced with 55,000 people vaccinated as of #December 30, or nearly 3.4 per 100 inhabitants. The vaccine is given free of charge to anyone over 18 previously registered on a website. #Kuwait, #Saudi #Arabia and #Qatar have also embarked on a massive vaccination campaign with the aim of covering their entire population in a few months.

#United #States: the operation #Warp #Speed working

#To the #United #States, where the virus has already killed nearly 350,000 people, 2.6 million doses were administered between #December 14 and 30, or 161,820 doses per day selon CNN. #We are far from the 20 million announced by the end of the year by #President #Trump, but this represents half of all the doses administered in the world. The goal is to immunize 100 million people by the end of the first quarter of 2021, and another 100 million by the end of the second quarter. #In most cases, this is the #Pfizer / #BioNTech vaccine but also that of #Moderna, authorized since #December 21.

#China and #Russia: large-scale experimental programs

#Unlike #Western countries, #China did not wait formarketing authorization to launch a massive vaccination campaign, launched as an “emergency program”. #More than a million #Chinese have already been administered the vaccine from #Sinopharm, for the moment the only #Chinese vaccine available while waiting for those from #Sinovac and #CanSino – the figures are not updated, however, the million mark having already been announced in #November. #Compared to its population, #China is therefore not among the first, but it must be said that, there, the epidemic has almost disappeared, making the emergency less urgent.

#In #Russia, where it’s the homemade vaccine #Spoutnik v which is administered, 150,000 people would have received the vaccine on #December 25, according to the RFE / RL website. #In order to convince two-thirds of skeptics, the government announced the creation of “immune passports”, allowing for example to work or to move freely.

#Three consultations to administer a vaccine, it takes too long

#France: a slowness

#With barely 200 doses distributed, #France does not even appear in the statistics and clearly looks like a black sheep. The injections are done in a trickle in retirement homes and it is difficult to see how the objective ofimmunize the 22 million #French people most at risk by the end of #April could be filled. #One of the reasons for this delay is the ” informed consent », A specificity unique in the world which requires preliminary interviews with a doctor for each patient. ” #Three consultations to administer a vaccine, it takes too long », #Gets angry about LCI Édouard #Obadia, resuscitator at the hospital of #Montreuil. #Many doctors also denounce the administrative burden which goes as far as indicating the size of the syringes to be used.

#In the government, we assume the slowness of vaccination. ” I do not confuse speed and haste “, said the #Minister of #Health #Olivier Véran, #December 29, assuring that #France will have caught up with its delay at the end of #January. ” #We didn’t go for a 100 meters but for a marathon “, he added. #Other members of the government invoke the reluctance of the #French who are barely 40% wanting to be vaccinated. #But, contrary to popular belief, taking your time is not necessarily the right solution to decide the skeptics. ” #It is not by taking very small steps that we will be able to convince them, on the contrary. They will say to themselves that if we go so slowly, it means that we are not sure of ourselves and that there is a danger », #Castigates the geneticist #Axel #Kahn sur #Europe 1.

#Eight #European countries including #Spain have not yet started their vaccination campaign due to a logistics problem at the #Pfizer factory in #Belgium. The #Netherlands, which has not yet validated the approval made by the #European #Medicines #Agency last #Monday, should for its part start vaccinations on #January 8.
