OREANDA-NEWS. Russians are lucky people, as they, unlike a large number of residents of other countries, already have the opportunity to get vaccinated against coronavirus. This opinion was expressed by a member of the Depeche Mode band, composer Martin Gore.

He admitted to «Izvestia», that he has to check daily, whether there is an opportunity to get the vaccination in Santa Barbara, where he has lived for 20 years. The inability to get vaccinated, he said, has a negative impact on the statistics of morbidity. Because of this, Gore is very worried about his family.

The United States leads in the number of infected and deceased people. Vaccination began in the country in December 2020. Americans use drugs from «Pfizer/BioNTech» and «Moderna». The first dose of the coronavirus vaccine was received by 13% of the country's population. At the same time, the authorities of states and cities complain about the insufficient volume of supplies.

Martin Gore is a British composer, singer, guitarist, keyboardist and DJ, who has been a member of «Depeche Mode» since it's founding in 1980. He has written the vast majority of the band's songs. Some of his most famous hits are «Personal Jesus», «Enjoy the Silence», «I Feel You», «People Are People», «Everything Counts», «Never Let Me Down Again» and others. In 1999, the British Academy of Composers and Poets awarded Gore the International Achievement Award. The award was presented to the composer by the head of «Mute», Daniel Miller.
