President Cyril Ramaphosa has revealed that he has set up a daily target for the number of people he wants to be vaccinated so that by the end of 2021, the country will reach herd immunity.
In his tweet, he disclosed that his daily target is 300 000 to be vaccinated across the country.
Read his tweet below
“I have set a daily target of 300 000 vaccination for the country in order for us to reach herd immunity by the end of 2021. We urge all those who have not yet done so, to go out in their numbers to get their jab this weekend. #VoomaVaccination” says Ramaphosa
His target is a good one, but can the country meet up with the target and would the citizens agree to take the vaccine? Many South Africans have rejected the vaccine, but some have changed their mindset and are already taking the vaccine.
The reluctance in taking the vaccine and the lack of the vaccine in the first place made the virus spread in the country. However, South Africa has been one of the countries with the worse hit in Africa and has been able to vaccinate many of its citizens and is still doing more to make sure most of the people are vaccinated.
