Joelle M. Abi-Rached published on twitter the full report by the Central Inspection following the first week of COVID-19 vaccination in Lebanon. Looking quickly at the numbers in the report below:
– 28,080 doses of Pfizer/BioNTech were received but the reported numbers are 15,241 (As of Feb 25). Yesterday, the number of doses administered was 34,664 out of around 60k. Where are the remaining doses?
– AUB has vaccinated almost 47% people outside the national platform. Tebnin 91.6%! What is the justification for what? What’s the purpose of the platform if half the people vaccinated are not on it?
This report was before the whole President & MPs vaccination scandal, and the way this matter is being handled has proven disastrous since the start. In other words, don’t expect things to get better anytime soon. The only solution is allowing private clinics and hospitals to acquire the vaccine to speed up the process and make more “free” doses available for people who can’t afford buying it, and are not privileged and corrupt like our politicians.
