The Gambian Ministry of Health data base up to 8th June shows 5 active cases ,all currently in hospital. Cross border entries seem to be the major source of covid 19 cases.

61 new COVID-19 cases today.

Very scary! I wonder whether the health care system will be able to coop because many health care workers specially the laboratory technicians are reported to be infected. Can it be because health workers are using substandard protection masks rejected by europa due to the poor quality?
