In the Australian Capital Territory, where Canberra is located, 76 percent of the population aged 12 and over has been fully inoculated, with local media reporting that the city is set to surpass the Portuguese capital Lisbon and Singapore to take the top spot next month as almost 100 percent of its eligible population is expected to be fully vaccinated by the end of November.
