Vaccination campaign picks up speed around the world

Global Covid-19 Deaths

The campaign to vanquish the coronavirus is picking up speed.

Britain has begun dispensing the second vaccine in its arsenal.

And India, the world’s second-most populous country, has authorized its first shots.

In the U.S., meanwhile, government officials say that the pace of vaccinations has accelerated markedly after a disappointingly slow start.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious-disease expert, said over the weekend that 1.5 million shots were dispensed over 72 hours, bringing the running total to about 4 million.
