The European Union has stagnated around 80% of those over 80 immunized against COVID-19. The continent has 78% of its elderly with a complete regimen and 81% with at least one dose. The percentage has not increased since mid-June, with data from the European Center for the Control and Prevention of Infectious Diseases, which is missing those of Germany. Spain, however, already reached almost 100% of the population of that age in May. This week Spanish nurses crossed a barrier and are already proportionally giving more doses per day than those in the United States. In doses administered with respect to the total population, we are immediately behind major references, such as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Israel, Chile, the United Kingdom. But we surpass Germany, the US, Italy or France. We have already exceeded 50 million doses and it is expected to arrive next week 50% of the population immunized with the complete regimen.
