Good News: All South Africans Should Take Note Of This Vital Information Revealed By Sisulu


In an appeal to Africans to take COVID-19 vaccine seriously in order to adequately curb the spread of the virus and guarantee those tourism operations across Africa are thoroughly reorganized, Lindiwe Sisulu, the Minister of Tourism for South Africa, has asked them to do so. Sisulu made the announcement on the sidelines of the 2021 Africa Travel and Tourism Summit, which was held in Lagos under the theme "Re-awakening Africa."

She stated that the COVID-19 immunization program must be taken seriously in order to remove African countries from the European Union's "red list." Moreover, she claims that the African Union has established a Pan-African bio-surveillance system known as PanaBIOS, which may be used to track the spread of the Coronavirus and connect testing centers across the continent.

According to Sisulu, the most recent statistics show that there have been slightly more than eight million infections across the entire African continent, which is 33 million fewer than the United States of America, 25 million fewer than India, and 13 million fewer than Brazil, according to the most recent statistics. She pointed out that almost 76 million immunizations have been provided throughout Africa in the last several years.

According to her, South Africa alone had provided more than 15 million vaccines, and the country had showed a decreased trend in terms of infection rates over the past few years as well. “Reports from East Africa indicate that inadequate availability of vaccines, sluggish vaccine rollouts, and a potentially high cost of immunization risk are all contributing to the region's economic slowdown.

In addition, vaccine financiers and African organizations that perform clinical studies came together to gather information on the virus and take action based on their results, which was a significant accomplishment. In order to prevent additional disruption of the African economy, we must take vaccination seriously,” she stated.

She stated that it was critical for Africans to come together as a continent in order to implement steps to rekindle the tourism industry, as this was critical for achieving a more inclusive recovery.

I believe that every South African should take note of this important information and start receiving the vaccine before it becomes late.
