In recent weeks, health authorities confirmed a downward trend in the level of Covid-19 infection, which, according to experts, is largely due to the broad scope of the vaccination campaign.
The positive results of the program are also evidenced by the decrease in hospital ward and intensive care unit admissions, as well as in daily deaths from the disease.
