The World Bank has granted 195 million dollars in financing to support COVID-19 vaccination efforts and the overall health sector. Part of the funding will be used to rebuild health centres damaged by the armed conflict in the north, which has been ongoing since November 2020. The financing will also go towards the procurement of COVID-19 vaccinations and ICU equipment. Health professionals have administered close to 30 million doses of various COVID-19 vaccines, including the Chinese-made Sinopharm, since the Ministry of Health kicked off a jab campaign last April. However, no more than a quarter of the population has received at least one dose. Daily reports published by the Ministry indicate the pandemic has simmered down in recent months as the positivity rate and mortalities drop to their lowest levels since the early days of the pandemic. Nonetheless, health officials urge the public to continue practicing social distancing and wearing face coverings. The pandemic has claimed a little over 7,500 lives since the first case was recorded in March 2020.
