Singapore saw the fewest deaths among those administered with a Moderna shot and the most among those who received Sinovac Biontech’s vaccine, as the city-state’s highly inoculated population provides a glimpse into how different immunisations are holding up in the real world.


Of the 802 people who died from Covid-19 last year in the city-state, 555 or about 70 per cent weren’t fully vaccinated, health minister Ong Ye Kung told the parliament Monday, showing the life-saving impact of inoculation.

Singapore found 11 deaths per 100,000 among people who received Sinovac shots and 7.8 deaths among those with Sinopharm.
