Shock As 200 Soldiers Contract Coronavirus




According to AFP, more than 200 Senegalese soldiers returning from The Gambia have tested positive for coronavirus.

It was gathered that the soldiers had served in a regional security force.

The news was confirmed by Senegal’s army and health ministry on Tuesday.

An earlier army statement had said 100 members of the more than 600-strong contingent had contracted the virus.

The 208 soldiers are staying at an army “hotel” in the village of Guereo, some 60 kilometres (35 miles) south of the capital Dakar, an army PR official told AFP.

The facility hosts troops who test positive for Covid-19 but are asymptomatic, he said.

The Gambia, a finger of territory surrounded by Senegal save for its Atlantic coast, has confirmed 3,428 cases of the disease and 105 deaths.

Senegal, for its part, has declared 14,529 cases and 298 deaths.

The Senegalese troops were part of a West African force first deployed in January 2017. They were there to assure a smooth transition of power after outgoing president Yahya Jammeh refused to concede defeat at the ballot box to Adama Barrow.

Its mission has since been prolonged at Barrow’s request, despite Jammeh’s departure into exile.
