By Isabella Iradukunda Elisabeth

In the city of Kigali, special measures have been taken to prevent the spread of the covid-19 epidemic after city residents found giving up on preventive measures and this has led to the increase in the number of infected people.

Fears also were that during the festive season the number of infected could be much higher than one can imagine.

The Ministry of Health urges the city’s residents to understand that the decisions were taken to protect their lives.

Rwanda announced a new preventive strategy across the country starting from Monday and special attention is made on Kigali city where the number of COVID 19 positive cases is going up.

The Minister of Health, Dr. Daniel Ngamije, in an interview with Rwanda Television on Monday, December 20, 2021, said that measures have been taken to protect the lives of the people.

Dr Daniel Ngamije said, “From today some decisions have been taken to prevent COVID 19 variant-Omicron.”

 Dr. Ngamije explained that there are people who have violated the COVID 19 prevention guidelines by going to various events while they were well aware that they have COVID 19 infection and some others have attended various ceremonies without testing.

Over time, people are increasingly being warned that the new COVID 19 variant is becoming more and more contagious, according to current statistics.

In just ten days in the city of Kigali the number of infections has exceeded 46 per 100,000 people out of five per 100,000 in less than ten days.

The new guidelines that will be reviewed after two weeks are marked with stringent protocols against the highly contagious respiratory disease.

They include mandatory Covid-19 health certificates for people to access some public places and sanctions for people who fault guidelines.
