The COVID-19 pandemic has taken over 7,000 lives since the first case was identified in the country nearly two years ago. The highest number of deaths recorded in a single day was 49 on September 28, 2021, during the pandemic's third wave. Although the number of cases is currently at an all-time high, with over 60,000 people testing positive since December 20, 2021, the mortality rate has remained at relatively low levels. Close to 450,000 cases have been registered thus far. Meanwhile, vaccination rates remain low as the Ministry of Health has thus far managed to administer at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose to nearly 11pc of the population.
