NUMBER OF MONTHLY AND WEEKLY CASES AND DEATHS

by : Month Week

Between January and June 2021, the Covid-19 virus caused more than 10,000 deaths in Tunisia. In six months, there were twice as many deaths than during the entire year of 2020. At the beginning of the epidemic in March 2020, when the country had only reported a few hundred cases, the measures put in place by the authorities allowed for the spread of the virus to be reduced until the summer. From August onwards, there was a new increase in cases, with tens of thousands of new infections. June 2021 was the deadliest month since the beginning of the crisis, counting more than 2000 deaths.

PROGRESSION of the daily average from the last 7 days, and measures announced by the government

The red line represents the evolution of the daily average of cases detected over the last 7 days, since the first case was announced on March 2, 2020. Some measures implemented by the authorities helped to slow down the spread of the virus during the first wave. However, since the reopening of the borders on June 27, 2020, the number of cases has continued to increase despite the regularly renewed curfew and restrictions. For the time being, the vaccination campaign that began in March 2021 has also not managed to curb the spread of the virus, and the number of cases continues to surge.

PROGRESSION OF COVID-19 FACILITIES (RESUSCITATION BEDS AND OXYGEN BEDS) IN PUBLIC HOSPITALS, ACCORDING TO REGION

Several oxygen and resuscitation beds have been deployed over the months to cope with the influx of patients, and to prevent hospitals from becoming saturated. Despite these efforts, they are still unevenly distributed across the country and the facilities remain insufficient. During the height of the epidemic, in June 2021, the occupancy rate reached 100% throughout many governorates.
