President of the Qiloane Nursing Assistants Association David Matšela said the members are hopeful that the government will realise the significance of the vaccine especially for frontline workers in the health sector.
The workers he said are at risk of losing their lives because of the virus, adding that as soon as the vaccine arrives in Lesotho, the spread of the deadly virus will be put under control.
The government has announced that it will receive the first batch of the vaccine in April.
After receiving the vaccine earlier this week, SA President Cyril Ramaphosa said MTN has made a donation to procure 7 million vaccines which will be made available to other African countries within the next few weeks.
Through the African Vaccine Acquisition Task Team of the African Union, a total of billion vaccines have been secured for the entire continent, he also said.
