Epidemiological indicators are positive, said Director General of Health Faycel Ben Salah. The bed occupancy rate in ICUs dropped (65%) as well as the number of patients under life support (50%). Likewise, the positivity rate fell to 15%.
The official urged citizens to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 which claimed over 24,000 lives so far in Tunisia. The Health Ministry is eying a higher vaccination rate for the over-40s.
The scientific committee to fight the coronavirus will meet next Tuesday to consider the state of affairs at a time when the immunisation drive is gathering pace.
