The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that the number of monthly deaths due to the Coronavirus in Libya has decreased by 71 deaths since last June, which is the lowest rate recorded since the beginning of this year, 2021.

In its monthly updated report on the epidemiological situation in the country, WHO added that despite conducting almost 94,000 laboratory tests per month during the past four months, the number of infections has been declining since March 2021, due to the increase in the number of healthy individuals.

WHO indicated that 100,000 doses of the Russian Sputnik vaccine and 54,990 doses of the American Pfizer vaccine arrived on June 15 and 24, adding that more than 899,000 individuals were registered on the vaccine system, including more than 3,000 foreigners, noting that the immunization program for immigrants and refugees has yet to begin.
