President Macky Sall had warned. The Covid-19 is still there. In recent times we have noted a rise in the “power” of cases due to the Coronavirus, at a time when a good number of Senegalese began to utter a sigh of relief, thus neglecting the barrier gestures in public transport, public places, among others.
To this end, the Head of State, after warning, convened a group of experts this Friday, November 27. They will have to look into the matter in order to establish a new action plan as soon as possible.
“The battle is not quite won …“
“I appeal to all citizens, but also to people living among us, to say that the virus is still circulating. The battle is not quite won. It is true that we have significant results. But if you see the curve of the evolution of the epidemic, we realize that there are also ups and downs. So there is a variation, a permanent oscillation, whereas we should see a curve that flattens“, Warned President Macky Sall last Thursday, during the opening ceremony of the 2nd edition of the digital forum in Diamniadio.
So to say that the psychosis of a possible second wave worries the Head of State. Because, for a while, the warning signs have been felt, especially with a considerable increase in community cases.
Guidelines and action plan …
Thus, informs Professor Souleymane Mboup, the President of the Republic has already convened since yesterday, Friday, November 27, a group of experts. And even “firm” directives were given by the Head of State with the Minister of Health. “There was an expert group meeting that started to make an action plan“, He emphasizes.
“We saw a second wave elsewhere …“
“A second wave is not to be ruled out. There are reasons that are international. The fact that it already exists elsewhere. Now nationally, we have started to see an increase in cases and there are certain factors such as the follow-up of index cases which must be done with much more completeness, passengers who come with false certificates. It is a set of factors that makes this something that should be seriously considered.“, He said on Rts. He was the guest of the 8 p.m. edition of the television news for this Saturday, November 28, 2020.
