Sumary of Spain vows to vaccinate 70pc by August:
- Spain is stepping up its vaccination drive, with Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez saying that a steep rise in deliveries over the coming months will allow the country to inoculate 70 per cent of its adult population – some 33 million people – against COVID-19 by the end of August..
- The 14-day cumulative incidence – a key contagion metric – rose Monday to 163 cases per 100,000 people, from 149 a week earlier..
- Those deliveries will include 38 million between April and June – 3.5 times more than in January-March, Sanchez said, when vaccine deliveries across Europe fell short of expectations..
- Supplies of the recently approved Janssen vaccine will help add momentum to the rollout, with five million of those jabs expected by the end of June…
