All civil servants in Guinea will now be required to prove that they have been vaccinated against Covid-19 before they are allowed to access their work stations.

President Alpha Condé directed the prime minister to ensure that ministers and all government staff obtain a health certificate to allow them to work.

He instructed government officers to take vigorous steps and act to protect the public from the risk of infection.

The president also ordered that people entering Guinea from countries affected by the Delta variant be vaccinated, as is the practice everywhere.

Mr Condé also announced the strict enforcement of preventive measures to curb the spread of the virus among citizens.
