The Minister of Health, Ali Al-Zanati gave assurances that the nightmare of the Coronavirus pandemic should disappear from Libya, as the vaccines continue to be brought in to the country and administered to the population.

Al-Zanati said that the Russian Sputnik V vaccine will be administered gradually for three main groups according to a set schedule.

He added in a press conference on Sunday that the Government of National Unity (GNU) would bear responsibility for any side effects of the vaccine; however, he did not anticipate any such effects would occur.

It is worth noting that 101,250 doses of Russian vaccine arrived on Sunday morning at Mitiga International Airport in Tripoli and this is the initial batch of vaccines to arrive in the country.
