Latest news from a source other than the tabloid press,I have posted the following Snippet relating to Africa.

"Pierre Louis Institute of Epidemiology and Public Health in Paris, told Nature that she’s most concerned about seven African nations that have a moderate risk of importing the virus, but whose weak health-care systems, low economic status or unstable political situation make them highly vulnerable. These countries are Nigeria, Ethiopia, Sudan, Angola, Tanzania, Ghana and Kenya."

A first case of Coronavirus (Covid-19) was confirmed in Senegal on Monday, local media have reported.

Several Senegalese media including IGFM reported on Monday a Frenchman living in Almadies has tested positive to Coronavirus.

The man is now at the Institut Pasteur in Dakar after travelling to Senegal from France on Saturday via Air Senegal, IGFM reported, adding the health ministry of Senegal was trying to get the flight’s detail in a bid to track everyone who travelled alongside the Frenchman in a flight which landed at Blaise Diagne International Airport.

It comes as President Macky Sall Monday morning called an emergency meeting to discuss the Coronavirus which has killed over 3,000 people worldwide.

Senegal is now said to be the fourth African country after Algeria, Egypt and Nigeria to confirm Coronavirus.

WHO

BREAKING

"In the days and weeks ahead, we expect to see the number of COVID-19 cases, the number of deaths, and the number of affected countries climb even higher. WHO has been assessing this outbreak around the clock and we are deeply concerned both by the alarming levels of spread and severity, and by the alarming levels of inaction.
We have therefore made the assessment that COVID-19 can be characterized as a pandemic"- Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

Europeans have better stay home than import corona virus into the Gambia.
Healthcare is vulnerable and does not manage to take care of the affected, both domestic and also tourists.
Of course, the revenue from tourism will not be the same, which is sad.
