He added that, over the last seven days, 108,000 doses were taken in England, 7,897 in Wales, 4,000 in Northern Ireland, and 18,000 in Scotland.

last week, 90-year-old Margaret Keenan became the first person in the world to receive a coronavirus vaccine outside of a trial, marking the rollout of the UK’s largest vaccination effort in history.

On Tuesday, the World Health Organization (WOH) announced that the new strain of Coronavirus is rapidly spreading across the UK, but it is not more dangerous in any way.
