The Surveillance Officer cautioned that COVID-19 was still prevalent, advising that people take advantage of the availability of vaccines to protect themselves from the virus.


She stated that “the problem is that there are a lot of negative rumours about the COVID-19 vaccine. There is a need to ensure that everybody gets vaccinated because this is the period that we record outbreaks. And the reason why people are not coming down with the virus is because of the vaccine.

“On our part, we cannot allow people to die because they do not know that the vaccine is there to protect them. There is enough vaccine to protect everyone.
