“75% of all Covid vaccines had happened in ten countries”
Which sounds awful unless you know that those ten countries are China, the US, India, The UK, Brazil, Germany, Turkey France, Indonesia and Russia and they account for 52% of the world’s population. And while the figures from China just aren’t known, The US, Brazil and India alone have suffered around a third of the reported deaths in the world. When everyone in the world has been vaccinated it will be the case that 52% of all Covid vaccines have happened in ten countries.
This is a rather good point really.

How about good news? Britain’s top epidemiologists has confirmed Britain is no longer in a pandemic. Sarah Walker, Professor of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology at Oxford and Chief Investigator at the ONS, now says Britain has “moved from a pandemic to an endemic situation”

Then she does not understand pandemics
By definition they are worldwide and there still is a pandemic to which we are at risk, worldwide
So the comment was ignorant, if she made it
(of a disease) prevalent over a whole country or the world.
