She reported that the situation in Tunisia is still very worrying in light of the widespread “Delta” strain.
The World Health Organization indicated that “the number of deaths in Tunisia doubled in less than a week, from 119 deaths on July 5 to 189 deaths on July 8.
On Wednesday, Tunisia announced 194 new deaths from the emerging coronavirus and 8,213 infections within 24 hours.
It is worth noting that, as of Sunday, vaccination with the anti-Corona vaccine included only two million and 206 thousand and 980, of whom 676 thousand and 613 people received the second dose, out of 11 million and 700 thousand people.
And on Friday, the ministry said that Tunisia is witnessing an unprecedented epidemic wave characterized by a wide spread of mutated alpha and delta strains, in most of the states of the republic, and the high rate of injuries and the number of cases cared for in hospitals, as well as an unfortunate rise in the number of deaths.
