Almost 90 percent of people hospitalized with Covid-19 in Lithuania are unvaccinated, according to preliminary data from public authorities. 

Just under 10 percent of coronavirus patients who were admitted to hospitals between early June and late July had received only one shot of a two-dose vaccine.

Data on new coronavirus infections show a similar pattern.

The unvaccinated accounted for around 80 percent of all new Covid-19 cases during the period. Ten percent of people who tested positive for the virus were fully or partially vaccinated.

About 90 percent of Covid-19 deaths were among unvaccinated people.

A detailed analysis of vaccine efficacy is currently being prepared and is planned to be published in mid-August.
