Spread of COVID-19 in AzerbaijanCurrent incidence in the week ending 03/28/2023: 3.2 new infections per 100,000 population
Since the beginning of the pandemic until March 28th, 2023, a total of 829,271 infected people and 10,153 deaths have been reported in Azerbaijan.
The total of 829,271 infected people currently represents 8.2 percent of the total population. The number of new infections during the seven days preceding March 28th, 2023, was 325, for a 7-day incidence of 3.2 cases per 100,000 population. In the same week, nine people died from (or with) COVID-19. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, this results in a mortality rate of about 1.2 percent in Azerbaijan.
Current vaccination statusAccording to official WHO data, a total of 13.81 million vaccine doses have been administered as of March 19th, 2023. More recent data are not yet available to WHO. There are 5.43 million people who have received at least one vaccination (53.5 percent). The booster vaccination was received by 3.50 million people (34.5 percent).
4.88 million of these are considered fully vaccinated in Azerbaijan (= 48.2 percent).
Thus, Azerbaijan belongrather to the lower midfield in terms of vaccination coverage. The vaccination rate is higher in 149 countries.

* The number of people suffering from diabetes refers only to inhabitants aged between 20 and 79 years.
* DTP is a combined basic vaccination against diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough) and tetanus, which should be given to children up to the age of 23 months.
In Azerbaijan, 24.0 percent of all over 15-year-olds are still smokers.
The number of underweight newborns is 7 percent.
Medical suppliesThe medical care provided by doctors and hospitals in Azerbaijan is above average and also exceeds the average achieved in the EU countries. The country provides 4.8 hospital beds per 1,000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about 34,900 physicians in Azerbaijan, there are about 3.45 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1,000 inhabitants and in the EU is 3.57.
Through medical care, the mortality rate of major known diseases can be reduced as far as possible. For example, only about 27 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.
Drinking water supplyExplanation of the graph:
Red line: access to water supply via wells or delivered drinking water
Green bars: Permanent access to running and tested drinking water connection
About 88 percent of the population has access to an immediately available, running drinking water supply. At least via springs and wells within a maximum distance of 30 minutes or supplied water, 96 peprcent of the population is supplied with largely clean drinking water. The population is thus better served than average. In a global comparison, only about 74 percent of the population has direct access to tested and always available drinking water. Within the European Union, this share is 98 percent. Only in a few countries does the proportion fall below 10 percent.
