Sydney (Australia), August 5 (EFE) .- New Zealand, one of the countries that successfully battled Kovit-19 and has been living in a normal practice for many months, has not seen the flu for vaccines. Vaccination of developed countries.
This Thursday’s data from New Zealand’s Ministry of Health, which recorded its last community infection on August 28, shows that more than two million of its more than 5 million people have been vaccinated against Pfizer, of which 782,600 have been vaccinated. Complete guidelines.
These numbers, less than 17 per cent of its eligible population, are fully vaccinated against Govt-19, based on doses administered per 100 population in New Zealand, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, Albania and below Peru. According to the newspaper’s comparison table. New York Times.
However, the population seems to be willing to accept it, however, Alex Gillespie, a legal expert at the University of Waikato, made it clear to Efe via email that this strategy would not be tolerated in the same way without success in controlling the epidemic.
“The patience worked because of good border administration. If there had been an explosion and large sections of the population had not been vaccinated, it would have been a disaster for the government,” Gillespie added.
Unlike other countries, New Zealand, which has closed its borders since March 2020, uses quick and severe locks with epidemics, accumulating only 2,524 infections, including 26 deaths since the outbreak.
Neighboring Australia and Fiji, which have been able to control the virus for most of the epidemic, are fighting the clock to provide immunizations to their people after the two eruptions, along with the delta variant.
Slow but sure
The Jacinta Artern government began its vaccination campaign on February 20 by injecting Pfizer into workers at border posts and vaccinating the general public over the age of 60 from July 28. Year with 16 year olds.
In designing its vaccination program, New Zealand took into account the high global demand for vaccines, which led to the siege of its exports last year, so Ardern calculated that by mid-2021 a large number of vaccines would arrive. Until the beginning of the year.
In addition, “some countries have issued emergency approvals prior to routine medical assessments and approval procedures” because “unlike New Zealand, they face the widespread social outbreak of Kovit-19 and the rapid increase in deaths”, which is then mandatory. .
The plan is to have only a few small eruptions of Kovit-19 in New Zealand from March 2020 and close its international borders, a spokesman for the country’s health ministry told Efe.
On July 21, New Zealand Minister Chris Hipkins justified the vaccination schedule by replying to Covid-19 that “he’s not going to do a speed race, but a one – year marathon.” Pfizer export and deployment as planned.
Feet for Artern’s popularity
But during this second Order regime, the Labor government has experienced two consecutive falls in popularity in July and August, which opens up the possibility of the end of the Govt-19 “honeymoon” for the attractive. The President, as pointed out. The latest report from consulting firm Roy Morgan,
Roy Morgan pointed out that the two-month slow pace of vaccination deployment with Australia due to the Sydney eruption and the unblocked travel bubble suspension would not “help” compared the situation in New Zealand to the United Kingdom. Nearly 90% of British adults receive at least one dose of the vaccine and 70% of adults are fully vaccinated.
The New Zealand Ministry of Health acknowledged that “vaccines will definitely change the face of international travel and border administration due to COVIT-19. There is still a lot to learn about the effects of the vaccine on infection and immunity.” EFE
