Chad began the official Covid19 vaccination campaign on Friday. To mark this occasion the Minister of Health and other members of the ministry received their shots. Then other local citizens lined up on Saturday in N’djamena for their first doses of China’s Sinopharm.
The vaccines are donated to Chad, the first very country to be given the doses. The batch of Sinopharm from China arrived earlier in the week. Dr Oumarou Ali was one of the first in line to receive the jab. AP said that “This vaccine is useful for everybody. As you know the coronavirus does not recognise religion or ethnicity. So I ask everybody to come and get vaccinated as soon as possible.” Chad reported at least 4.938 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 174 deaths so far.
