The British government has said it intends to provide at least one gun to everyone over the age of 50 by mid-April, and to all adults by the end of July. Meanwhile, there are plans to reduce lockout restrictions, with stores, restaurants and cafes preparing to reopen next month.

London: Half of all adults in Britain have now received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, making the country the world's largest economy to hit that milestone, Health Minister Matt Hancock said on Saturday.

Britain reached that figure after releasing 660 276 records the day before, Hancock said. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who had the AstraZeneca vaccine on Friday, tweeted "Let's move on".

Israel is at the forefront of vaccinating its population, followed by the United Arab Emirates, Chile, and then the United Kingdom - and investors are looking closely to see what economies are showing the first signs of recovery.

"The vaccine is a national success and is our way out of this epidemic," Hancock said.

By comparison, more than 20% of the US population has received at least one dose, and they are less than 10 percent of the EU population.

The European Union - where there are growing problems of some kind of disease - is calling for vaccinations to be restored after at least 13 countries suspended the use of the AstraZeneca gun last week due to security concerns.

The European Medicines Agency has long argued that the benefits of protecting people from coronavirus-related death or hospitalization outweigh the potential dangers of the vaccine.

Led by its state-owned healthcare service, the British rapid release of AstraZeneca and Pfizer is expected to drop in April, delayed shipments and the need to test bulk vaccines.

Vaccination races have left Britain and the European Union in dispute over the export of the drug. The European Union (EU) on Wednesday threatened to impose sanctions on Britain, which imports Pfizer vaccine into Europe.
