This is an alert bell to all Cameroonians and a challenge to be more vigilant, the Director of Disease Control at the Ministry of Public Health, Dr Georges Alain Etoundi Mballa, underlined yesterday, May 27, 2020 in Yaounde at the Public Health Emergency Operations Centre during the daily press briefing on the evolution of the Coronavirus pandemic in the country.
With such increasing positive cases of Covid-19 in the country, Dr Etoundi Mballa says the country ranks 7th among the countries most affected by the deadly contagious disease in Africa.
At the same time and at the heart of this health war, Dr Etoundi Mballa stressed that the figures highlight the need to renew and reiterate to the entire community, certain preconceived ideas which, in spite of everything, stand the test of time and scientific evidence.
Sanitizing your hands with a hydro alcoholic solution or washing your hands with clean running water and soap is the most effective way to kill the virus, Dr Etoundi underlined.
Getting rid of such misconceptions, the health personnel said should lead the population to adopt an exemplary discipline in terms of respecting the barrier measures used to prevent the spread of the virus.
