“We are looking at immediate access to vaccines as we are working on manufacturing them.”


The President conveyed his condolences to the families which have lost relatives due to the cholera outbreak. “These are fellow citizens who we have lost,” he said.


“The country is going through a very difficult situation at the moment. We are in this situation that the country opens the year with a dreadful and terrible disease called cholera, which has taken a lot of people.


“We can’t afford any more loss of lives. It is clear, from the statistics which have been released, that a number of our citizens go to seek medical treatment late.
