ARAB NEWS: Vaccine key to protecting against COVID-19 variants even for patients, says Saudi health ministry

JEDDAH: Vaccines are key to increasing immunity against COVID-19 variants, even in those who have recovered from the disease, the Ministry of Health said Sunday. Ministry spokesman Mohammed Al-Abd Al-Ali began his regular press conference by clearing up the misconception that those who had recovered from COVID-19 could rely on the immunity gained from their initial infection. He explained to the media that a post-recovery dose of vaccine provides a greater efficacy rate, a longer-lasting effect and better protection for the community, given the current situation and the circulating strains, particularly the delta variant. He stated that it was crucial that patients who have been vaccinated are taken to the closest vaccine center. They were not limited by time.

It said there were 41 more recoveries, increasing this total to 536,626, while a further two coronavirus-related deaths pushed the death toll up to 8,745. There are currently two,220 cases in active, 139 which are in critical condition. Riyadh had 22 new cases, Jeddah had eight, while Makkah and Madinah had four new cases each. There were 41,093 PCR tests carried out in the past 24 hours, raising the total number conducted to more than 29.3 million since the start of the pandemic. More than 43.5 million vaccine doses have been administered in the kingdom since the beginning of the rollout last December, with 23.6 million people vaccinated so far. As the country tightens and enforces stricter rules for entry into public and private institutions, more people are expected to finish their programmes. More than 56 percent of the Kingdom’s population is fully immunized. Saudi Arabia’s Transport General Authority, spokesman Saleh Ibrahim Al-Zwayed, said at the same press conference that 90,720 field inspections had carried out with just 145 violations reported last month. He added that more than 750,000 people used different forms of transport in the Kingdom and that the authority, through its inspections of buses, taxis, trains, ferries and others, was ensuring all passengers and crew had completed their immunization course and were wearing masks at all times. The authority was also ensuring there was no more than 50 percent capacity and that social distancing was being adhered to. Police are stepping up efforts to ensure compliance with safety and health measures that aim at preventing the spread.
