South Sudan suspends restrictions against Covid-19

South Sudan suspends restrictions against Covid-19

Juba, Oct 31 (Prensa Latina) The government of South Sudan announced the suspension of restrictions to contain Covid-19 and issued guidelines related to the disease for travelers entering and leaving this territory.

Noting that prohibitions such as the closure of sites affected by the disease are lifted, the director of the Preventive Health Service of the Ministry of Health, John Rumunu, said that those arriving in the country must present a Covid-19 vaccination card prior to entry.

For travelers leaving this territory, we maintain that they should follow the guidelines of the country of destination and also show a document with the complete vaccination schedule against the disease, he said.

According to the source, South Sudan, a nation with a positivity rate of only 1% in the last two weeks, has a cumulative total of 18,313 confirmed cases, with 138 deaths, since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020.

This African territory, which gained independence from Sudan in 2011, currently has 60 active cases, with no patients in critical or serious condition.

The incidence of the Covid-19 pandemic in this territory, as in others in Africa, has resulted in the slowdown of the economy.
