Health officials stressed the need to expedite registration through the Covid 19 vaccination platform, noting that there is no justification for hesitation in registering and taking the vaccine, Al Qabas daily reported.
The number of cases present in intensive care rooms for those infected with the virus reached a record number, indicating the seriousness of complications from the virus for those who did not receive doses of the two approved vaccines in the country. Adding that the distribution of vaccinations will reduce mortality rates and admittance into intensive care.
They added to Al-Qabas that the highest rate of admission to intensive care for treatment due to Covid 19 was recorded on 1 April, which is 252 cases, with the majority being the elderly and youth. This highlights the seriousness of the virus and only those who received two doses of the Pfizer or Oxford vaccines will not suffer the full effect of the coronavirus symptoms, and reduce admission rates to hospital wards.
In the same context, health officials confirmed that the recovery rates from the virus compared to the number of daily infections in the country is still reassuring, compared to other countries, as it reached the day before yesterday, in Kuwait, to 93.6 percent, compared to 88.5 percent in Qatar, and 89.1 percent in Oman, 92.8 percent in Bahrain, 96 percent in Saudi Arabia, and 96.5 percent in the UAE.
