A total of 51 COVID-19 patients were registered as recovered overnight, bringing the number of active cases down to 617.

Vaccination

Health authorities are also no longer providing a figure for the number of people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and instead limiting data to the number of vaccine doses and booster doses provided.

A total of 1,058 vaccine doses were administered in the past 24 hours.  

So far, health authorities have administered 811,183 vaccine doses. Of those, 4,821 were booster doses.
