He clarified, however, that "the mortality rate for our country remains low, it is around 0%, one of the best indicators in the countries of the European Union. "For us, any loss of human life is tragic, and that is why we constantly call on our compatriots to proceed with their vaccination and to observe all those measures, which are recommended by the experts".

He pointed out that the worst month was August 2021 with 92 deaths. "Since the beginning of January until today we have more than 85 deaths, they are serious cases, they are elderly people, the vast majority of them, people without a history of vaccination," he added.
