GOVERNMENT ASKS EMPLOYEES TO GET VACCINATED AGAINST COVID-19 OR RESIGN

The government in Zimbabwe is asking its employees to get vaccinated against Covid-19 or resign.

It says the move is aimed at reducing the risk of spreading the virus.

In an interview with a local radio station, Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi says that employees who think they have a right to choose whether or not they can be vaccinated have it all wrong,

The government previously introduced a new regulation for churches and restaurants to only allow people with a vaccination card inside their premises.

The aim is to tackle vaccine hesitancy within the population.

The southern African country has been able to fully vaccinate 1.7 million people, about 12% of its population. About 3% of the people in Africa have been fully vaccinated.

No country in Africa has introduced legislation to make a Covid vaccine mandatory to the population.

However, some experts are of the opinion that a case can be made for such policies to be introduced as a way of tackling the pandemic and its threat to public health. [BBC]
