Highlights

  • Active cases of COVID-19 are continuing to drop steadily across the oPt, with positivity testing rates showing a marked decline especially in the West Bank.
  • Hospitals are benefiting as a result: just two people are on ICU ventilators in the West Bank, while in Gaza there are three.
  • 100,000 doses of a new vaccine 'Sputnik-Light' are delivered to the Palestinian Authority (PA): a bilateral purchase from the Russian ‘Gamaleya' research lab, this vaccine is administered as a single dose.
