Since the beginning of the pandemic until June 4th, 2023, a total of 186,651 infected people and 315 deaths have been reported on the Maldives.
The total of 186,651 infected people currently represents 34.53 percent of the total population. The number of new infections during the seven days preceding June 4th, 2023, was 26, for a 7-day incidence of 4.8 cases per 100,000 population. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, this results in a mortality rate of about 0.2 percent on the Maldives.
Current vaccination statusAccording to official WHO data, a total of 951,764 vaccine doses have been administered as of May 25th, 2023. More recent data are not yet available to WHO. There are 399,308 people who have received at least one vaccination (73.9 percent). The booster vaccination was received by 167,289 people (31.0 percent).
385,167 of these are considered fully vaccinated on the Maldives (= 71.3 percent).
This means that the Maldives are still among the fairly good midfield countries in terms of vaccination coverage. The vaccination rate is higher in 81 countries.

Medical suppliesThe medical care provided by doctors and hospitals on the Maldives is above average, but is not as good as the average within the EU. The country provides 4.3 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 541 physicians on the Maldives, there are about 1.04 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 of major known diseases can be reduced to an above-average extent. For example, only about 12 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.
