Ministry of health records lowest number of covid deaths since August

The Ministry of Health has reported 33 deaths due to Covid-19 – the lowest figure since the end of August last year.

Compared to last Thursday there were 73 reported deaths due to the coronavirus.

The ongoing vaccination drive is being seen as the main reason for the drop in infections, with people under the age of 60 now being offered the choice of a different second vaccine if their first injection was from AstaZeneca.

The incidence rate has also significantly fallen and now stands at just under 140 infections per 100,000 people.
