Kamerun in Zeiten der Corona-Pandemie

Das Corona-Virus trifft die Menschheit weltweit – und dabei ganz besonders die Menschen in Entwicklungsländern.

Das Corona-Virus ist jetzt wohl auch in Kamerun angekommen. Zumindest gibt es Berichte über Infizierte, Erkrankte und Tote. Wie stark das Land vom Virus tatsächlich betroffen ist, lässt sich allerdings nur schwer einschätzen. Vor allem fehlt es an Tests, wodurch nur selten Diagnosen gestellt werden können und fast keine verlässlichen Zahlen und Statistiken vorhanden sind.

Erste Maßnahmen haben Regierungsstellen auch in Kamerun schon getroffen. Seit Mitwoch, den 18. März 2020, sind Schulen, Bildungszentren, Hotels, Restaurants, Bars und Diskotheken geschlossen. Offizielle Stellungsnahmen warnen vor dem Virus, man sollte möglichst zuhause bleiben. Krankenhäuser nehmen bereits jetzt keine Patienten mehr auf.

Auch in Kamerun gibt es neben den vor Wochen angeordneten Ein- und Ausreiseverboten erhebliche Ausgangsbeschränkungen, die aber von den meisten Menschen ignoriert werden.  « Wenn ich nicht durch das Corona-Virus sterbe, werde ich vor Hunger sterben », so berichten viele Einwohner, vor allem in Armenvierteln.

In Kamerun leben viele Menschen unterhalb der Armutsgrenze und « au jour le jour », meist als Tagelöhner. 65% der Bevölkerung hat weder einen festen Job noch ein festes Einkommen. Die von der Politik und der Regierung erwartete Hilfe ist derzeit weder vorhanden, noch besteht Hoffnung darauf. Außer Verhaltensregeln und Einschränkungen kommt bei der Bevölkerung derzeit zumindest nichts an.

« Lehrer sollten digitalen Unterricht anbieten und Meetings sollten durch Telekonferenzen ersetzt werden. Dazu sind jedoch die Voraussetzungen, insbesondere technischer Art, nicht vorhanden. Ein eigener Computer oder Laptop bleibt immer noch ein unerreichbarer Luxus, und für die wenigen, die einen PC besitzen, gibt es permanenten Stromausfall. Darüber hinaus sind Cybercafés extrem teuer und müssen von Lehrern und Schülern aus eigenen Mitteln bezahlt werden »

 so berichtet ein Lehrer.

In Krankenhäusern fehlt es an allen Arten von Schutzausrüstungen (Schutzkleidung, Masken, Handschuhe und überwiegend Desinfektionsmitteln). Und noch schlimmer ist:

Das Corona-Virus kann dort nicht durch Tests, sondern nur durch das Krankheitsbild (Husten, Fieber, Atemprobleme,…) diagnostiziert werden.

Krankenhäuser haben landesweit kaum Aufnahmekapazitäten und es fehlen Beatmungssysteme und Intensiv-betten.

Für die Bevölkerung bleibt nicht viel mehr als hoffen und beten.
Passen Sie auf sich auf und bleiben Sie gesund !

    issues. When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot
    of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced
    but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
    Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    First of all I want to say excellent blog! I
    had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.

    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!

    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a
    difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
