The Director of the Vaccination Department at the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC), Abdul Basit Samio, warned of a new danger of the entry and spread of an Indian strain of the Coronavirus in Libya.

Samio called on all citizens to take extra precautionary measures, advising them not to travel to high-risk countries, saying that the epidemiological situation in the country is considered good in comparison to recent months.

He also explained that this improvement is fraught with caution and anticipation, particularly with the spread of this new Indian strain of the virus in neighbouring countries such as Egypt and Tunisia, calling on the government to seek even more vaccines, pointing to the arrival of approximately 55,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine on June 24.
