According to the World Health Organization, Egypt has the most efficient vaccination rate against COVID-19 at 79.53 doses per 100 citizens. This was revealed by the Acting Minister of Health and Population, Khaled Abdel Ghaffar.
According to the minister, 81.4 million shots have been given to Egyptian residents and citizens.
The overall amount of fully vaccinated citizens has surpassed 34.3 million, with an additional 2.5 million receiving booster shots.
The spokesperson for the Ministry of Health and Population, Hossam Abdel Ghaffar, clarified that the ministry’s actions in recent months — such as the widening of vaccination locations and a campaign for in-home vaccinations captioned “Knocking on doors” — have resulted in an increase in vaccination rates, which was critical to the stability of Egypt’s epidemiological and health event.
Egypt has seen a constant decline in the number of COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, with a mean of 89 new infections per day in the last week, and six COVID-19-linked deaths per day.
Egypt ceased updating its daily new COVID-19 infections two months ago and began offering a weekly report.
The health minister emphasized Egypt’s commitment to infectious disease prevention via vaccination and the execution of elaborate health initiatives that incorporate local programs and public education designed to educate the public about the gains of getting immunized.
