Three students were injured in Cameroon’s South-West region after a stampede broke out following a rumoured Covid-19 vaccination campaign, The Guardian Post newspaper has reported.

The students from the city of Kumba are currently being observed by medics, the newspaper adds.

“The injuries were recorded in the wake of a stampede as many struggled to escape a rumoured Covid-19 vaccination campaign,” an excerpt of the article in the newspaper read:

Last month, health officials said the central African nation was “not in a hurry” to introduce Covid-19 vaccines.
