VALLETTA (Reuters) – Malta has donated 40,000 COVID-19 vaccines to Libya, the Mediterranean island’s health minister said on Tuesday.
The vaccines were delivered on a chartered flight to the nearby north African state along with 40,000 rapid test kits.
“Malta remains committed in doing its part to support Libya in overcoming global challenges,” minister Chris Fearne said in a Facebook post.
Malta has fully vaccinated more than 80% of its population, and is starting to administer a booster jab to elderly and vulnerable people.
According to latest Reuters data, Libya has administered at least 764,233 doses of COVID vaccines so far – about 5.6% of the country’s population.
