South Sudan sets tougher rules and prohibits unvaccinated government personnel.
The government orders public institutions to bar unvaccinated people from accessing offices.
The task group also urged higher learning institutions to ban unvaccinated students and personnel from campuses unless they present negative test results within 72 hours. This happened as the nation was facing an increase in instances of the coronavirus.
According to the head of the national task force, it aims to restrict the spread of the virus in the country. In all, South Sudan recorded 410 new cases in the previous three days.
This boosts South Sudan’s overall tally to 13,459. The number of deaths related to the virus remained at 133 as there was no new fatality confirmed.
Hussein Abdulbagi said government organizations and higher learning institutions should abide by the directive with immediate effect.
He also advised religious organizations to obey the preventive steps imposed by the Ministry of Health.
Abdulbagi instructed event organizers to acquire approval before any function takes place.
“Any individual who doesn’t take a vaccination must take it, and whoever is not vaccinated will not come to the government institutions from now,” the head of the national task force on COVID-19 stated.
Hussein said that “We would limit all higher education institutions to not allowing admission to their premises to anybody who is not vaccinated.”
“If you haven’t taken your immunization and you want to enter, you must present a test certificate which was issued within the past 72 hours. You shouldn’t be permitted to enter without it.
“We want to give the ministry of finance a direction not to allow individuals to enter without the certificate, and if there is an urgent emergency that necessitates you to enter and you have not been vaccinated, you should come with a test certificate within the past 72 hours.”
