Kuzolahlwa imithamo eyizigidi ezimbili yomuthi wokugoma i-Johnson & Johnson (J&J) otholakale ukuthi ungcolile.

NgoMgqibelo uNgqongqoshe Wezempilo obambile uMmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane umemezele lokhu, njengoba izwe lilwela ukubhekana nolunye lwezinhlelo zokugoma ezihamba kancane emhlabeni.

Kodwa kulokhu, ngokusho kukaNgqongqoshe, uhulumeni akumele asolwe.

Umuthi wokugoma okwamanje usesitshalweni i-Pharma e-Gqeberha e-Eastern Cape, futhi inkinga yaqala eMelika.

I-US Food and Drug Administration (i-FDA) iphenye isitshalo sokukhiqiza umuthi wokugoma e-Baltimore mayelana nokungcola okungaba khona kwamaqoqo amaningi emithi yokugoma, kufaka phakathi umuthi wokugoma i-J&J.

I-FDA ithole izindaba eziningana zokuhlanzeka nokulawulwa kwekhwalithi esitshalweni okwenza ukuthi ukukhiqizwa kwesitshalo kumiswe okwesikhashana.

I-New York Times ibika ukuthi abahloli be-FDA bathole ukuthi abasebenzi kuleso sitshalo abagezanga futhi bangazishintsha nezingubo zabo ngemuva kokusebenza kuqala nezithako ze-AstraZeneca base balendela nezithako ze-J&J.

INingizimu Afrika bekulindeleke ukuthi yamukele futhi iphathe imishanguzo engaba yingxenye yesigidi ye-J&J ebizogoma oothisha. Umuthi wokugoma unesikhathi esikaliwe futhi uphelelwa yisikhathi mhla zingama-28 kuNhlangulana.

Kodwa-ke i-FDA iqinisekisile ukuthi ezinye izinhlayiya zomuthi wokugoma i-J&J bezifanele ukusetshenziswa kodwa kuze kube manje abakaze basho ukuthi yimaphi amaqoqo lawo nokuthi iyiphi imigomo.

INingizimu Afrika yathenga imithamo engaphezu kwezigidi ezingama-30 yomuthi we-J&J womthamo owodwa futhi ithembele kakhulu kulo muthi wokugoma ukuze izwe lifinyelele ekuvikeleni abantu abaningi.

Izwe belihlele ukugoma abantu abayi-220,000 ngosuku kodwa isilinganiso samanje siyi-40,000 nsuku zonke.
