The Comorian president by a decree on Thursday, December 23, made vaccination against the Coronavirus compulsory on his territory.
President Azali Assoumani said this is the perfect solution to deal with the increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in recent days.
To achieve this goal, five days of paid leave have been granted civilian workers to allow everyone update themselves.
Security forces carry out checks on the roads and any eligible person who has not been vaccinated is brought to police office to be vaccinated.
“The challenge is to achieve a 60% rate of complete vaccination by the end of the year for the entire population,”the decree said.
The country has so far recorded 5,867 cases of coronavirus, including 154 deaths.
