Quotes

"People who are living in the frontiers have started migrating to Maroua and it can actually degenerate into an explosion and to start handling those who are moving from the peripheries to the town will be a difficult situation for the government" he said

"As a result of the conflict in CAR, vaccination campaigns have not been carried out regularly; thus the refugees are exposed to these health hazards. There is therefore a high risk of contaminating people in host communities" Dr Ehouzou warned
