Mosques and religious institutions have an important role to play in educating the public about key issues.

Author and scholar, Professor Aslam Fataar contends that these institutions should therefore devise protocols for accommodating people who have not been vaccinated against Covid-19.

He was speaking as the debate grows over vaccination passports, and whether religious institutions should enforce these restrictions.

But Fataar says that most people who have not yet been vaccinated are hesitant, and not fully opposed to the inoculation.

He says that closing the mosque doors to this group of people will alienate them from the conversation.

Meanwhile member of the Groote Schuur Hospital board, Dr Zameer Brey says that people that are vaccinated are less likely to transmit the disease.

He suggests that there needs to be proper dialogue on how to protect public health.
