The Ministry of Health said today that the rate of immunity against the coronavirus in Palestine has reached 40 percent, with 39 percent in the West Bank and 41 percent in the Gaza Strip.
The ministry said the results were based on the National Study on Measuring Community Immunity Against COVID-19 in the Palestinian Society, performed in cooperation with the World Health Organization and the Palestinian National Institute of Public Health.
The study was performed to a sample of 6136 persons (males and females) selected by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS).
According to the ministry, the study provides clear answers to a significant number of questions related to COVID19 in Palestine, most importantly are the level of immunity among the Palestinian people, the rate of infection and the percentage of asymptomatic infected people.
