China leads the global count with more than 1.48 billion jabs, followed by India with 415.47 million.

The list continued with mostly the Western countries, with the US having administered 338.49 million shots, Brazil 126.64 million, Germany 87.12 million, the UK 82.59 million, Japan 73.97 million, and 65.58 million in France.

Since December 2019, the pandemic has claimed more than 4.12 million lives across the world, with an excess of 191.61 million cases reported, according to US-based Johns Hopkins University.
