KATHMANDU: The Ministry of Health and Population has revealed that most of the people succumbing to coronavirus infection of late are found to be unvaccinated.

According to the Assistant Spokesperson of the Ministry Dr Samir Kumar Adhikari, 75 percent of those who died of COVID-19 were found not vaccinated against coronavirus.

He urged those unvaccinated to get inoculation services as they are the most vulnerable to contagion.

“We urge all those unvaccinated to get first, second and booster dose of inoculation against COVID from the nearby health facility as per the need”.

Two people lost their lives to coronavirus infection today itself. So far, 11974 infected have succumbed to COVID-19.

Those unvaccinated are 10 times more vulnerable to severity and fatality than the vaccinated, the ministry sources claimed.

Inoculation of booster dose provides 85 percent protection to the infected from severity and possible death.

As informed, 93.3 percent targeted population has received first dose of inoculation service against COVID while 88.5 percent have been vaccinated with second dose.

The ministry has urged the people to wear mask covering nose and mouth, maintain physical distance and resort to frequent hand washing with soap and water in order to get protected from infection.

Currently over 1,000 people are testing positive to coronavirus every day.
