YAOUNDE, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 26th Mar, 2021 ) :-- All festive events in Cameroon's Centre region that hosts the capital city Yaounde have been banned, the region's governor Naseri Paul Bea said in a statement Thursday evening.
He said the decision was taken following an upsurge in COVID-19 infections and deaths in the region.
The decision came after Cameroon's Prime Minister Joseph Dion Ngute told a COVID-19 task force meeting on Thursday to intensify sensitization campaigns as infections continue to increase in the Central African nation.
