KUWAIT, Aug 4 (KUNA) -- Some 91.1 per cent of the people who died from COVID-19 in July were not vaccinated, Kuwait health ministry spokesperson Dr. Abdullah Al-Sanad said on Wednesday.
The remaining four per cent received one dose, while 4.9 per cent received two doses, added the official.
The nationwide COVID-19 vaccination campaign is ongoing at 101 centers, he said, mentioning that daily appointments have reached 100,000.
The tangible results of global vaccination campaigns call for optimism, said Dr. Al-Sanad. This is demonstrated in the reductions to fatality rates and intensive care admissions.
The main path to ending the pandemic's repercussions has become determined by vaccine turnout and maintaining adherence to health measures, he underlined. (end) mrf.sd
