The number of persons that have been vaccinated against with the first jab of the AstraZeneca vaccine has now reached 90-thousand 9-hundred and 16.
In the last 24 hours, 5-thousand and 58 people have received the vaccine.
Health Minister Jonas Chanda is hopeful that the country will reach the 100 thousand mark of vaccinated persons in just a few days.
Speaking when he delivered a ministerial statement in Parliament on the update of the Coronavirus pandemic situation in the country, Dr. Chanda also reassured all those receiving the first jab that they will all receive the second jab on the prescribed day of doing so.
He said the standard set in Zambia by health experts is that it has to take 10 weeks before any person that gets the first jab of the AstraZeneca vaccine could get a second jab.
And the health Minister has disclosed that in the last 24 hours, Zambia has only recorded 59 new confirmed cases of Covid-19, from the 4-thousand 8-hundred tests carried out.
He says this figure of new Covid-19 cases represents a 0 point 7 percent positivity of the virus in the country.
