Points of Entry (POE); Operational Support and Logistics
The surveillance team at points of entry continues to test all passengers crossing Cameroon's air, sea and land borders.
Needs: With the strengthening of testing at the borders, PoE actors have identified some gaps, in particular:
There is a lack of premises to house health posts at the border.
Lack of staff, especially medical staff.
Lack of equipment and materials for testing.
Absence of knowledge or information on COVID-19 activities at border health posts.
On 20 November, the Minister of Health appointed the heads of border surveillance posts in the 10 regions of Cameroon.
Partners including WFP and WHO announced that they will make tents available to house emergency teams.
Gaps & Constraints:
Skepticism of population regarding the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic in Cameroon.
