Coronavirus: Cameroon plans mass testing

Business in Cameroon | In Cameroon, the government is planning mass covid-19 testing but is “awaiting test kits” to organize the test. This was revealed by the Minister of Public Health Malachie Manaouda on his Twitter account on March 23.

He was replying to a suggestion made by a user to organize mass testing like polio vaccine campaigns. “You will certainly be informed of the collection centers as soon as possible,” the official added.

On his Twitter account, when questioned why suspected covid-19 cases are not quarantined in the Olembé social housing, in Yaoundé, Malachie Manaouda replied that the country was preparing itself to do so.

Let’s note that Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba, promised to donate 20,000 test kits, 100,000 masks, and 1,000 protection equipment to each of the 54 African countries.

On the morning of March 24, the minister indicated that in Douala, Bafoussam, and Yaoundé, the number of confirmed cases was respectively 12, 3 and 51. This brings the number of people tested positive to the covid-19 in the country to 66.

  1. COVID-19 is a Blessing to the Anglophone Question.

    WHY??????

    because COVID-19 will destroy the criminals ruling LRC .

    • Italy lost due to COVID-19:

      1. 800 patients on the 22.03.2020
      2. 764 patients on the 23.03.2020
      3. etc

      Italy:

      1. provides enough CLEAN water to the population
      2. has well-equipped Hospitals
      3. well-trained Health personnel
      4. etc.

      That notwithstanding, Italy could not Prevent the havoc of COVID-19

      For the Benefit of comparism, the so-called “one and indivisible” LRC:

      1. cannot provide CLEAN water to the Population
      2. has poorly-equipped Hospitals
      3. is a Country ruled by criminals
      4. etc.

      Mallam Cavaye has contaminated parliamentarians, Ministers, Health Workers, civil servants, etc. with the deadly COVID-19 with impunity.
      Simply put, in a few months time most of the above-mentioned contaminted persons will die from COVID-19.

        Only an UNSTOPPABLE AMBAZOMBIE FOOL will attempt to compare the health system in Cameroon with the health system in Italy!

        How dumb do you have to be to attempt to make such a comparison?

        If you are a responsible citizen interested in the well being of Cameroonians, you will be reiterating the need for Cameroonians to follow the guidelines given by the government and the WHO to protect themselves. Maintaining social distance of 2 meters, washing hands often, and stay home!

    • Believe me or not, the war on COVID-19 is more challenging than the:

      1. the war on Boko Haram
      2. the war on the “secessionists”,

      COMBINED.

      LRC cannot win any of the above-mentioned wars.
      Mallam Cavaye has transformed parliament into the epicenter of COVID-19 in the Country.
      LRC does not have the resources, infrastructure, Expertise and will to defeat COVID-19.
      Simply put, COVID-19 WILL DEFEAT THE CRIMINALS RULING LRC.

      The Junta in Etoudi will collapse thanks to COVID-19. The BIR is helpless in front of COVID-19.
      The international community will then step in and impose UNGA Resolution 1608.

      MARK MY WORDS!!!

        Ambazombie Stupidity on display!

        How can you compare a pandemic with an armed conflict impacting less than 1 percent of the worlds population?

        You have to be an absolute fool to be an ambazombie!

        How dumb do you have to be to imagine that Covid 19 will impact the president of Cameroon more than it will impact any other person on earth? Nyamfukah!

        Covid 19 does not discriminate. It will infect and kill humans everywhere in the world until a global solution is found!

        Cameroon like other countries can only follow the guidelines provided by WHO. We cannot over emphasize the importance of washing hands, maintain a social distance of at least 6ft, and staying at home. No visiting and no visitors.

  2. And so the regime of the child of the `Grand Master`, will only protect his dumb
    citizens, only when foreign help comes in. The war to finally assimilate SC, has
    emptied the treasury. Bad still, mighty France is panicking also with the coronavirus.
    Anyone who knows what survival means, should think about personal safety.
    If God is listening, this is time to spread this virus, inside the military. They are evil,
    that plagued the country by supporting a tyrant against a gullible people.

      Ambazombie stupidity on display!

      No one is safe from corona virus. You are not safe from corona virus! You may already have it!

      If your Odeshi god spreads the virus among military men, the military men will spread it to the public without discrimination! So tell your odeshi god to spread covid to the military so that the military can spread it to you!

      You have to be an absolute fool to be an ambazombie!
