Praia, Sep 14 (Inforpress) – Cabo Verde recorded in the week of 6 to 12 September seven deaths from complications of COVID-19, five people of whom were not vaccinated, and at this time has 25 hospitalized patients, most also without vaccination.
The data were revealed today by the National Director of Health, Jorge Barreto, at the weekly press conference for the evaluation of the epidemiological situation of the country.
As you have specified, of the seven people who died as a result of Sars-CoV-2 infection in the previous week, five were not vaccinated and two others had only a single dose.”
Therefore, 71% of the deaths recorded in the previous week were from people who had not received any dose of COVID-19 vaccine and two others had received only one dose of vaccine.
We haven’t had deaths from people who have been fully vaccinated. This represents another indication the vaccine really protects against complications and deaths,” he said.
