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?

BREAKING:Gambia registers 61 new cases of Covid-19,the highest number reported in a day so far.The total number of confirmed cases from March to date,stands at 277.
