Spread of the corona virus in LiberiaCurrent incidence in the week ending 10/07/2022: 1.1 new infections per 100,000 population
Since the beginning of the pandemic until October 7th, 2022, a total of 5,459 infected people and 220 deaths have been reported in Liberia.
The total of 5,459 infected people currently represents 0.11% of the total population. The number of new infections during the seven days preceding October 7th, 2022, was 55, for a 7-day incidence of 1.1 cases per 100,000 population. In the same week, 72 people died from (or with) Covid-19. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, this results in a mortality rate of about 4.0 percent in Liberia.
Current vaccination statusAccording to official WHO data, a total of 3.91 million vaccine doses have been administered as of October 2nd, 2022. 3.63 million people have received at least one vaccination (71.9%). The booster vaccination was received by 1,987 people (zero%).
3.23 million of these are considered fully vaccinated in Liberia (= 63.9%).
This means that Liberia is only in the middle of the field in terms of vaccination coverage. The vaccination rate is higher in 103 countries.
Due to the current corona pandemic, we update the worldwide case numbers daily. A list of all infected and dead people by country can be found on our Covid19 virus topic page.

Medical suppliesMedical care provided by doctors and hospitals in Liberia is below average compared to the world population. The country provides 0.8 hospital beds per 1000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about 193 physicians in Liberia, there are about 0.04 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1000 inhabitants and in the EU even 3.57.
Due to the low level of care, the mortality of major known diseases can only be reduced in comparatively few cases. According to current information, about 18 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) still die.
