The Ongoing Global COVID-19 Pandemic and Related Vaccines
Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in Wuhan, China in late 2019 through April 2021, 140 million people have been infected and 3 million people have died from the pandemic worldwide. In the United States, more than 30 million people have been tested positively which caused more than 560,000 death. Two dozen countries have reported more than one million confirmed cases within their borders. Nowadays, approximately 300 million vaccine doses have been administered in the U.S. About 150 million Americans have received at least one dose. The 9.33-million-people Israel enjoys the highest rate of COVID-19 vaccination in the world after nearly 9% of her population infected and more than 6,400 died. This can be contributed to its limited population and enormous influence in Europe and America. The United States enacted Vaccine Act as early as 1813. The federal and state governments have many kinds of regulations of vaccine medicine injury compensation. The relevant provisions may be found in different laws, including Title 42 of the U.S. Code: The Public Health and Welfare.
