Despite this, according to the data reported by 24 countries, it was reported that the occupancy rate in hospitals did not change, while the occupancy rate in the intensive care unit continued to decrease.

According to ECDC data, 66.2 percent of people over the age of 18 in the EU received the first dose of vaccine, while 48.7 percent were fully vaccinated.
