Fear and mistrust over the COVID vaccine is spreading fast in South Sudan as cases rise and supplies come close to expiration.

Coronavirus is spreading across much of the African continent, where only one percent of the population has received a vaccination.

The government is offering the jab to everyone, including foreigners, in the hopes of encouraging people to get vaccinated and so the supplies don’t go to waste.

Sky’s Africa correspondent, John Sparks, reports from the capital, Juba.
