Local #COVID19KH cases continue to trend down in lowest level in 2 months whilst over 40% of the population has now had at least 1 dose as the 11 millionth dose is given.

Cases- 423 local cases reported is the 2nd lowest in 6 weeks- 396 imported cases, almost 800 in 2 days, mostly from Thailand, and many likely have the Delta variant (which so far has not been detected in the community)

Deaths, Tests & Recoveries- 29 deaths continues to be on the high side sadly for the 3rd consecutive day- 15.5k tests were reported over a 2 day period in line with usual numbers – 716 recoveries were reported, active cases stay at a similar level.

Vaccines- 164k doses were given yesterday, below numbers we were getting a week ago but still quite high- 96k 1st doses, 68k 2nd doses- 6.65M 1st doses to date, 40.3% of pop, 66.5% of adults- 4.43M 2nd doses to date, 26.9% of the population, 44.3% of adults- 11.1M doses have now been given, 67 per 100 people.
