The United Arab Emirates has now administered more than two million coronavirus vaccine doses, inoculating nearly a fifth of its population as it tries to emerge from the pandemic that has ravaged the key tourism industry.

The Gulf nation is home to about 10 million people, mostly foreigners, and has the second-highest per-capita inoculation rate in the world after Israel. The government’s website showed the country administered 93,846 doses on Tuesday, taking the total to 2.07 million.
