Written by on April 21, 2021

The number of people vaccinated against the coronavirus in Spain has now passed the total number of recorded infections.

On Tuesday the Health Ministry said that more people had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 than those having tested positive for the virus since the start of the pandemic.

Officially 3.43 million cases of the coronavirus have been recorded in Spain, whilst 3.45 million people have received both vaccine doses.

The news came as it was confirmed that nearly half of those aged from 70-79 have received first dose of Covid-19 vaccine, with the vaccination rate set to increase significantly in the coming weeks following on from an EMA ruling this week over the Janssen vaccine.
