Gregoire Mvogo, Governor of Cameroon’s Eastern Region has restricted access to public offices from citizens not yet vaccinated from Covid-19 in the Region.
The information was shared in a press release from the Eastern Region published on October 4, 2021. According to Gregoire Mvogo, this decision is a key measure to keep at bay the recent surge in coronavirus cases in the East Region.
The ban on unvaccinated people as stipulated by the communique, starts on Monday, October 11, 2021.
“From Monday, October 11, it will be necessary to present vaccination records against Covid-19… to access the premises housing public and para-public services in the Region,” the communique read.
In case of an absence of a vaccination record, the communique adds that the citizen must provide a negative Covid-19 negative test result, done not more than 72 hours back.
Cameroonian Health experts have warned citizens against the third wave of the pandemic, which according to them is deadlier than before.
The Cameroon Centre Pasteur, CPC on August 27, 2021, sent a correspondence to the Minister of Health showing that 18 carriers of the Delta variant had been discovered in some parts of the country. It also indicated that vaccination against the pandemic is the surest way of preventing its spread further.
