The Ministry of Health on its website notes the following:

“The immunization status cases may not match the daily number of COVID-19 cases as records with missing or invalid health card numbers cannot be linked.

Patients’ data in the ICU is collected from two data sources, which have different extraction times and public reporting cycles. This could lead to discrepancies with other hospitalization numbers that are collected using a different process.”
