President mulls restrictions on unjabbed Mozambicans

Mozambican President Filipe Myusi, has urged people to comply with measures to control the spread of the new coronavirus variant.

He told everyone to get vaccinated against Covid-19, while threatening to introduce restrictions of services to unvaccinated people.

“Please come forward for the vaccines because at any time we may limit unvaccinated people,” he said.

He said he would speak again on the issue in a few days.

It comes amid a rise in recent days of the number of daily infections.

On Tuesday, the country registered more than 700 cases, a situation that has been worsening every day this month amid an emergence of the new Omicron variant.

The country has already confirmed 17 cases of the Omicron variant.

Last month saw a steep decline in the number of daily infections, with the coronavirus figures being in the single digits, before they started to rise this month.

“The situation is not good. The day before yesterday I was told of a situation where, in a set of 200 people, out of 133 tested, more than 60 people are infected in a small place, which means that the situation needs our care,” President Nyusi said on Tuesday.
