Since the beginning of the pandemic until October 7th, 2022, a total of 20,859 infected people and 154 deaths have been reported in French Polynesia.
The total of 20,859 infected people currently represents 7.4% of the total population. The number of new infections during the seven days preceding October 7th, 2022, was 1,365, for a 7-day incidence of 485.9 cases per 100,000 population. In the same week, seven people died from (or with) Covid-19. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, this results in a mortality rate of about 0.7 percent in French Polynesia.
Current vaccination statusAccording to official WHO data, a total of 460,803 vaccine doses have been administered as of July 31st, 2022. More recent data are not yet available to WHO. 188,245 people have received at least one vaccination (67.0%). The booster vaccination was received by 88,909 people (31.7%).
183,649 of these are considered fully vaccinated in French Polynesia (= 65.4%).
This means that French Polynesia is only in the middle of the field in terms of vaccination coverage. The vaccination rate is higher in 98 countries.

Supply with drinking waterExplanation 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 84 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, 100% 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% of the population has direct access to tested and always available drinking water. Within the European Union, this share is 98%. Only in a few countries does the proportion fall below 10%.
