US Vs UK, Which Country Will Receive the First ‘Batch’ of the AstraZeneca Vaccine?

 The president of the United States (US) is secretly looking for an opportunity to 'snatch' the hopes of the United Kingdom (UK), the AstraZeneca vaccine in an effort to prevent COVID-19 in their respective countries.


In a revelation, Trump reportedly made an appointment with the founder of AstraZeneca before the UK to get the vaccine.


This means that as explained by the firm AstraZeneca, the vaccine will be distributed based on "who can get it fast".


AstraZeneca explained that if the US government first issues approval for the use of the vaccine, then the US is entitled to the supply in the near future.


As you know, Trump has promised to distribute 300 million doses of vaccine in early 2021 through the $ 10 billion Operation Warp Speed ​​plan.


Based on the allocation record for the two countries, the US invested $ 1 billion in AstraZeneca in collaboration with experts from Oxford University to establish a coronavirus vaccine



Meanwhile, the UK invested £ 84 million for domestic study purposes and £ 388 million for research purposes in other countries.


UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has managed to 'hold' 100 million doses of vaccine so far and the US already has one-third of the one billion vaccines AstraZeneca will produce.


In addition to AstraZeneca, other firms that have also established vaccines include Moderna Inc and Pfizer Inc.


The active case record to date has reached 9,069,555 with deaths rising to 1,118,825. This brings the cumulative case to 40,323,175.
