From March 1 to September 14 this year, of 9494 deaths of people in Bulgaria who had tested positive for Covid-19, 64 were people who had completed the vaccination cycle, the Health Ministry said in a media statement on September 15.
This adds up to 0.67 per cent of the Covid-19 deaths in Bulgaria over that period of time, the ministry said.
The Health Ministry said that first Covid-19 death of a patient who had completed the vaccination course was on March 21.
It said that from September 1 to 14, a total of 7.2 per cent of those in hospital were people who had completed the vaccination cycle, meaning either that they had a received a second dose from a two-dose vaccine or one from a single-dose vaccine.
Over that period, 6488 people were in hospital with confirmed Covid-19. Of this total, 468 had completed the vaccination cycle.
Only 20 people who had completed the vaccination cycle required intensive care – about 0.3 per cent of the total 6488 hospitalised during that period, the statement by Bulgaria’s Health Ministry said.
