As Christmas and New Year’s Eve mark the end of the year, Rwandans are being urged to take precautions, especially those who are not vaccinated as soon as possible because vaccines are available and there is a new strain of the virus known as Omicron.

This was echoed in a press conference by some members of the Government on the outcome of the Cabinet meeting on the ongoing confrontation with COVID-19 on the afternoon of December 15, 2021.

The Minister of State for Local Government, Gatabazi Jean Marie Vianney, called on all citizens not to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.

He reminded those who are not immunized that there is a mass immunization program launched on Tuesday across the country.

“We urge the local authorities to join hands with the health sector to sensitize the people who are not vaccinated and to vaccinate themselves,” he said. As many as 5 million vaccinations have been sought, are ready for delivery and will continue to be distributed to people from December 14 to March. they are not vaccinated and they are vaccinated because all vaccines found are possible. ”

He encouraged ordinary people as well to take part in solving this great task: “One of the things you and other people can do is keep up the pressure … there are going to be some difficult decisions for government”.

“I would like to remind you that as we enter the festive season of the year, there were people who had arranged the wedding and those who had come from abroad to the wedding and were preparing to meet in large numbers.

Today I would like to remind you that the plan is that the wedding will continue but no more than 30% of the people at the meeting place and the meeting place should be in good condition which can allow the air to enter and that decision was made including 30% of the reception capacity if people went. 300 when there is a hundred, if there were 100 there would be 30 people and you would not include 100 people. ”

These are the special times to avoid COVID-19

Minister of Health Dr. Ngamije Daniel said that now is the time for people to take precautionary measures against the virus and protect themselves from it as soon as possible.

“It simply came to our notice then. This virus always surprises us, it transforms itself. We need to make sure that we have a large number of people who do not know about it, but they are very serious about it. ”
Dr Ngamije added that the process of vaccination will not be forgotten, as vaccines are available and that the health sector will be closer to the people.

“All levels will be given equal attention from the age of 12 upwards, those who have reached the time of taking the 2nd dose and those who have been called upon to strengthen it,” he said. Vaccines are the lasting answer, vaccines are the only way to avoid them and there are groups that will go down and find people where they live. Everyone in the category will get the vaccine without a hitch. ”

The Minister of Health also said that out of 23 colleagues examined, 6 were found to be infected with the Covid-19 mutant Omicron.

The number of new infections is increasing and new strategies have been introduced

He pointed out that the number of new infections is increasing in recent days compared to last month, urging Rwandans to abide by the new regulations.

“It simply came to our notice then. But for those who followed closely in the last week of November and the first week of December the figures changed as yesterday we reported about 50 new patients.

In general, we have again exceeded the 5/100 000 patient list once a person has surpassed 5 to 100,000 new patients and we have moved from a very low rate of infection to a seemingly increasing rate of infection. ”

This position is not for testing

Minister of Trade and Industry Habyarimana Beatha called on buyers and traders to end the year in strict compliance with the Covid-19 epidemic guidelines.

He encouraged ordinary people as well to take part in solving this great task: “One of the things you and other people can do is keep up the pressure … there are going to be some difficult decisions for government”.

“At the end of the year, Christmas and New Year’s Eve are celebrated,” he said. It is the traders who want to make money, the buyers who want to make a good day and are happy that they have been able to finish the year with COVID-19 […]. Keep in mind that last year everyone had to stay home. But this year due to the behavior we feel we trust in Rwandans we want to make it clear on the instructions given. So this position is not for the faint of heart. “There are differences of opinion that we would like to ask Rwandans to end well, work together and increase the COVID-19 complication rate in the country.”

enter the store, wear a proper hat and appoint supervisors to comply with the regulations.

Rwanda National Police spokesperson CP John Bosco Kabera returned to the issue of possible compensation for the epidemic by urging Rwandans to abide by the new regulations.

He encouraged ordinary people as well to take part in solving this great task: “One of the things you and other people can do is keep up the pressure … there are going to be some difficult decisions for government”.

“Before COVID-19 it was as if COVID-19 was over,” he said. I have been vaccinated or tested. Remove the lid and look carefully. You are well dressed but you are wearing a veil. It’s not 100 years old. Such words are not taken care of and they come into the Christmas and New Year holidays and I think they will bring great things. I urge Rwandans to look back and remember the decisions made on the 18th of January this year, which we are concluding. ”
