Cameroon has recorded a rise in Coronavirus infections with over three hundred cases confirmed in just a week.

The new figures which stand at twenty-two thousand four hundred and twenty-one cases were communicated two days ago via a tweet by the Minister of Public health, Dr Malachie Manaouda who has reiterated the need to respect barrier measures to avoid witnessing a second wave of infections as it is the case with some European countries.

The same statistics indicate that four more deaths have been recorded, meanwhile three hundred and fifty-nine victims have recovered.

It is no news that many Cameroonians have stopped observing barrier measures prescribed to curb the spread of the pandemic on the basis that the country is now free.

The first COVID-19 case was recorded in Cameroon’s political capital Yaounde on March 6. The pandemic then spread all through the country and by the month of September, the rate of infections began to drop.
