(Fighting New Coronary Pneumonia) The number of new coronary pneumonia vaccination in South Africa exceeds the 100,000 mark

  China News Agency, Johannesburg, March 6 (Reporter Wang Xi) As of March 6, the number of confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia in South Africa reached 1,518,979, with 50,566 deaths.

The number of new confirmed cases of new crown pneumonia in South Africa in a single day has been maintained at around 1,000 for several consecutive days. The South African government also announced that the second wave of epidemic peaks has passed.

  On the evening of March 5th, local time in South Africa, South African Minister of Health Mukez informed at a regular press conference that since the first batch of vaccinations for the new crown pneumonia vaccine in South Africa started on February 17, there have been 100,180 people from all over the country. Medical workers are vaccinated.

He pointed out that this data was completed less than one month after the start of the vaccination work. The results are encouraging. The South African government is confident in overcoming the epidemic.

  Mukez also reiterated that vaccines are still the most effective way to prevent the spread of the new crown pneumonia virus.

A few days ago, the South African government confirmed that it has ordered 11 million and 20 million doses of vaccines with Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer. The South African government will also obtain 12 million doses of vaccines through the WHO-led "New Coronary Pneumonia Vaccine Implementation Plan" (COVAX).

It is expected that by the end of this year, the South African government will complete the vaccination work for more than 40 million people, that is, two-thirds of the total population.

  Glenda Gray, a professor at the South African Medical Research Council, said that although more than 100,000 vaccinations were completed in a short period of time, it is gratifying for the positive progress made in the fight against the epidemic, but the health departments of all parts of South Africa still have to start In the first stage of vaccination work, we will continue to summarize experience, and strive to improve efficiency and improve the level of skills in dealing with various difficulties in the next larger-scale vaccination work.
