Today, we were delighted to host Africa CDC Director Dr. John N. #Nkengasong and his team to our offices in Yaounde, Cameroon. Dr Nkesangong, having engaged with government officials, health care workers & volunteers, expressed satisfaction and gratitude with measures being taken to fight Covid-19.

Dr Nkengasong pointed out that health care workers and volunteer medical professionals have been diligent in their commitment to fight the pandemic and that they still need more support. He called for vigilance from everyone, to avoid a second wave of the pandemic.

He said communities need to maintain the public health safety measures, revealing that Africa CDC would soon mobilize 500 additional local responders in recognition and support of the role communities have been playing.

“We are better prepared today than we were months ago, we can’t afford to drain down all the efforts from the lessons learnt,”.

He said despite the pandemic taking the continent by surprise with uncertainty and no prescribed solutions, joint efforts from Member States, stakeholders and communities have been encouraging, partly helping to reduce the impact of the pandemic.

Earlier in the week, Dr Nkengasong toured testing sites to appreciate the work being done by heath care workers, community members and volunteers.
