Covid-19 partial lockdown lifted in South Sudan
After more than a month, the South Sudan National Taskforce on Covid-19 has removed the partial lockdown on Covid-19.
Due to an increase in Covid-19 cases, the Taskforce on Covid-19 enforced a three-week partial lockdown on December 21st of last year.
According to the national ministry of health, the covid-19 comeback has now been eradicated throughout the country in recent weeks.
The South Sudanese Undersecretary of Health, Dr. Victoria Anib, confirmed the lifting in a Radio Tamazuj report seen by NCMP on Thursday.
“In comparison to December’s spike, the number of reported cases has decreased dramatically.
As per WHO guidelines, we are no longer in resurgence, which is why the partial lockdown has been lifted. “According to MOH Undersecretary Victora Anib, we continue to encourage the general public to take preventive measures.
