Players from both teams will be subjected to vaccination against cholera before their October 9 clash.
Cameroon and DR Congo players will undergo cholera vaccination two days before their Saturday clash in the northern Cameroonian city of Garoua, which is situated in a region that suffered a cholera outbreak months ago, Cameroon FA (Fecafoot) said on Wednesday.
The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, who arrived in the city on Tuesday, left their Benoué Hotel rooms on Wednesday morning to a hall in the lobby where each received a tablet to be taken ahead of the vaccination slated for Thursday morning.
“We have been told by the ministry of health that the cholera situation has greatly subsided, but we’re taking precautions to vaccinate all players staying here ahead of Saturday’s match against DR Congo,” said a medical staff of Cameroon’s team.
DR Congo players will be subjected to the same precautionary exercise unless their officials decide otherwise, according to the Fecafoot.
The Congolese delegation is expected in Cameroon on Thursday.
