The Ministry of Health in Gaza has raised the level of preparedness in anticipation of the entry of new strains of coronavirus, including the Indian variant, the Deputy Director General of Primary Care in the Ministry of Health in Gaza, Dr. Majdi Duhair, said.

Duhair expects the Indian variant of COVID-19 to reach Gaza Strip, since it has appeared in surrounding countries, and is characterised by its highly infectious rate.

Only 70,000 people in the Gaza Strip have received the covid vaccine, he said, adding that this gives them a level of protection against the disease.

He urged people to get vaccinated, saying it is the only safe way to confront the pandemic.
