The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations which has already been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic will start in 24 hours. Strict measures have therefore been imposed by the Cameroonian authorities in order to limit the spread of the famous disease, Coronavirus.
Several steps must be taken for those who wish to access the stadium, according to the explanations of the Cameroonian Ministry of Public Health.
You have to register online to obtain the health pass by being vaccinated, get tested negative 48 hours before each match by a PCR test or 24 hours by a TDR test and come to the stadium entrance with your health pass, printed.
In addition, access, “to fan zones, hotels for players and delegations will be conditional on proof of a valid health pass,” the government insisted.
The latter specifies that “this device relies on more than 2,000 to 2,500 staff who will test and monitor as many spectators as necessary”.
According to local media, Covid-19 vaccine and test stations have been multiplied at the 6 tournament sites.
CAF and the AFCON local organizing committee decided on Tuesday to cap stadium capacity between 60% and 80%. But this gauge still does not motivate the supporters to be vaccinated in order to be able to watch the matches at the stadium.
