Botswana is on the verge of being the first country in Africa to ban the use of Bluetooth devices in public places.
The move, which is scheduled to take effect on January 20, will help tackle the spread of the coronavirus and other respiratory viruses.
Botswana has already banned mobile phones in the country’s airports, universities and some workplaces.
The ban has been applauded by international health officials.
The WHO is currently working with Botswana to develop an implementation plan for the ban, which will include the deployment of mobile screening devices and the provision of information on how to avoid the spread.
Botswanans have already taken steps to protect themselves from the virus, by wearing masks and wearing masks with an eye patch.
However, experts are worried about how the country is handling the issue.
Dr. Stephen Dixson, head of the WHO’s coronaviruses program in Africa, told The Associated Press that he worries about the “dysfunction of the current national response” and what it will mean for Botswana’s efforts to stop the spread in the coming months.
“There’s a very significant gap in our understanding of how we should do that.
It’s an area of ongoing debate,” he said.
The country’s government is already making preparations for a coronaviral pandemic.
It is planning to deploy 1,000 extra health workers in the capital, Mbabane, and plans to distribute the World Health Organization’s new coronavirecipitation model to health facilities.
It has also created a mobile-screening network and is planning on testing all public health workers.
Botswans are also looking for ways to limit the spread from their home country.
The government recently introduced a pilot program that allows residents to take the national health service to the nearest hospital to receive treatment.
However the country still has a long way to go in order to combat the virus.
“The majority of the population is not infected,” said Dr. Jochen Dokker, the director of the World Bank’s Ebola and Other Viruses Division.
“They have not yet been exposed, but they are going to be exposed.”
