President Barrow has been told to shut all entry points in the Gambia over the rampaging covid-19.
One of West African countries with few cases of the coronavirus, Gambia got its premier covid-19 case this week.
The patient, a UK-based Gambian woman, passed through the Banjul International Airport on board a Royal Air Maroc flight to home where she self-isolated before turning herself in at MRC having displayed symptoms, prompting examination and her eventual confirmation as a carrier of the epidemic.
Public meetings have since been banned including sports in drastic efforts to curb any possible infections.
However, borders remain open which today led former minister Sidi Sanneh into urging president Adama Barrow close all entry points.
Dear President Barrow, Please close our borders immediately. We cannot afford to expose our people to the COVID-19 virus. Thank you.
