The Governor of the Littoral Region, Samuel Dieudonné Ivaha Diboua, announced they will soon deploy random control missions in Douala to ensure that the Covid-19 restrictive measures are followed by the population.
The plan targets busy places, mainly schools, and universities where the situation is worrying. The official said the region faces a "resurgence of cases of Covid-19 as well as the increase of deaths," but the population seems to not be following the measures strictly.
The Littoral region is the region most affected by Covid-19 after the Center. Respect for safety measures and social distancing remains the best way to limit the spread of the virus. Therefore, the governor is asking religious leaders, presidents of urban and interurban transport unions, traditional chiefs, business leaders, and school officials to "ensure the strict application of distancing measures, hand washing and systematic wearing of masks in their various communities.”
On March 26, the governor of the Central region, Naseri Paul Bea, suspended festive events in the region until further notice. On April 5, the Governor of the West, Awa Fonka Augustine, decided to suspend the organization of funerals for two months. According to official figures, Cameroon has 61,731 confirmed cases and 919 deaths as of April 8, 2021.
