Ucwaningo luthole ukuthi imithi emibili emikhulu yokugoma i-Covid-19 isebenza kahle kakhulu uma kuqhathaniswa nokwehlukahluka okutholwe eNdiya.

I-Public Health England yahlola imithi yokugoma evela ku-Pfizer, okuyi-jab esetshenziswa kakhulu eNingizimu Afrika okwamanje, kanye ne-AstraZeneca, ngokuqhathaniswa nokwehlukahluka kwaseNdiya. Lokhu kuhlukahluka kubangele ukubhujiswa eNdiya futhi kusakazeka nase-UK.

Okunye ukuthelelena ngolokhu kwehlukahluka kwenzeka eNingizimu Afrika.

Ucwaningo luthole ukuthi i-Pfizer jab ibisebenza ngo-88% ekuvikeleni izimpawu zesifo esivela ngokwehlukahluka eNdiya emasontweni amabili ngemuva kokuthatha umthamo wesibili.

I-AstraZeneca, okwamanje, ibisebenza ngama-60% emasontweni amabili ngemuva komthamo wesibili.

Kodwa-ke, yomobili imithi yokugoma yayisebenza kuphela ngama-33% uma kuqhathaniswa nokuhlukahluka kwaseNdiya emasontweni amathathu ngemuva komthamo wokuqala.

Ochwepheshe bathe le mithi yokugoma kungenzeka ukuthi isebenze kangcono kakhulu ekuvimbeleni ukugula nokushona okunzima.

Ucwaningo luthinte abantu abayi-1,054 okuqinisekiswe ukuthi bathole nalokhu kuhlukahluka kwaseNdiya phakathi kokuqala kukaMbasa kuya maphakathi noNhlaba.

UDkt uJenny Harries, isikhulu esiphezulu se-UK Health Security Agency uthe lolu cwaningo “lungubufakazi bokuqala bangempela bokusebenza komuthi” uma kuqhathaniswa nokwehlukahluka.

Okuhlukahluka sekusabalele emazweni angaphezu kwangama-50 emhlabeni jikelele, kwathi ngomhla ziyisishiyagalolunye kuNhlaba, i-National Institute for Communicable Diseases (i-NICD) yaqinisekisa ukuthi ukuthelelana okune kokwehlukahlukana kutholakele okwamanje eNingizimu Afrika.

NgeSonto, uNgqongqoshe wezeMpilo uZweli Mkhize wamemezela ukuthi bayizi-2 894 abantu abahlolelwe leli gciwane ngalolo suku, kwathi abangama-30 bangenwa yi-Covid-19 bashona.

Lezi zindaba ziza njengoba ucwaningo olwehlukile luthole ukuthi i-Covid-19 iyiphinda kabili ingozi yokubelethwa kwezingane sezishonile kwabesifazane abakhulelwe abanegciwane.

Lokhu okutholakala kamuva sekwenze ukuthi abesifazane abakhulelwe babekwe eqhulwini ukuze bagonywe.
