Cameroon reports no new case of COVID-19 for 7 consecutive days


Cameroon has reported no new case of COVID-19 for seven consecutive days, according to the country’s Minister of Public Health, Malachie Manaouda.

“For the first time since March 5, 2020, our country has just gone a week without a single COVID-19 patient in our hospitals. Congratulations to the health soldiers,” Manaouda said in a tweet on Wednesday.

“But the fight continues because COVID-19 is not over yet. Let us redouble our vigilance and get ourselves vaccinated,” he added.

Cameroon’s success in curbing the pandemic is thanks to good measures implemented by the government, public health expert Robert Djomo told Xinhua.

“We have ensured that many people are vaccinated, social distancing is respected, wearing of face mask is mandatory and the citizens have listened to their government,” Djomo said.
