Guyana recorded 60 new cases of coronavirus yesterday, pushing the total number of new cases recorded in January to more than 1300.
The increasing cases come as the Government is engaging international partners and organisations to procure doses of the coronavirus vaccine.
The vaccines will not be mandatory and Guyana is expected to see its first set of doses arriving late this month or early March.
Through the COVAX United Nations organized scheme, Guyana is set to receive 3800 doses of the vaccine.
Guyana is trying to secure additional doses through CARICOM and is also looking at procuring vaccines from Russia and India.
China has already agreed to donate 20,000 of its coronavirus vaccines.
The President has said all vaccines that are being sought by the Government will have to be granted World Health Organisation approval.
