Foroyaa: March 23, 2020

By Ndey Sowe

https://foroyaa.gm/health-ministry-pushes-for-suspension-of-all-congregational-prayers/

The Ministry of Health wants the Executive to order for the suspension of all congregational prayers in the country.

This request came after the kingdom of Saudi Arabia banned congregational prayers in mosques and sequel to the Gambia Government’s confirmation of the first death as a result of Coronavirus on Sunday evening involving a 70-Year old male Bangladeshi national.

Modou Njai- Director of Health Promotion at the Ministry of Health said their next step is the fumigation and shutdown of Markaz where second case was identified as well as shift work of 1025 hotline handlers, contact tracers, RRT member, and other EOC members.

He lamented that funds are yet to be released for COVID 19 coordination and response.

He added they will develop and implement the use of daily call logs and the expansion of COVID 19 testing facility to the NPHL BL3 Laboratory and also Standard Operation Procedures (SOP) for quarantine to be disseminated and implemented.

He averred that they will develop a rapid assessment tool for the upcoming nationwide assessment of isolation centers, health facilities and Points of Entries (POEs), adding this assessment tool will be shared with other committees for their input to capture their needs.
He said they will continue with tracing contacts of the second person including mortuary attendants, line listing, quarantine and testing of suspects that met case definition.

“Plans are on the way to quarantine all staff that have contact with the deceased and fumigation of Bundung Maternity Hospital, EFSTH Mortuary, and the ambulance that carried the corpse”, he said.

He explained that SOP for sample reporting system to be developed and implemented with immediate effect. He added SOP for burial will be developed and disseminated as well as training of drivers, mortuary attendants, personnel responsible for Emergency Operation Centers (EOC) and quarantine center security on COVID 19.

Serign Modou Joof- Deputy Executive Director National Disaster Management Agency (NDMA) who doubles as Coordinator of the COVID 19 Taskforce reminds the general public that they will continue to see people coming to them to lodge complaints.

He added: “if you think there is a suspect that you were in contact with, dial the number 1025 and tell us who you are, where you are and we will come for you”, adding suspects should not join public vehicles to meet them, this he said will create more problems.

He said the reason why all these contacts have been created is to ensure that things are well coordinated at their end.

Pandemonium hits Bundung amid 1st covid-19 death

The Point: Thursday, March 26, 2020

http://thepoint.gm/africa/gambia/article/pandemonium-hits-bundung-amid-1st-covid-19-death

Inhabitants of Bundung especially those around Markass Center are in a state of panic, after the death of a 70-year-old Bangladeshi, who was earlier tested positive of coronavirus before his death on Saturday.


The Bangladeshi, who came to preach in the country; was residing at the Bundung Markass Center. After his demise, people living around the Bundung Markass are left in totally fear as some locked families, while others vacate the area for other places.

The Point recently went out and about to assess and talk to people about normal life, after it emerged in the news the 70-year-old Bangladeshi, who was residing at Bundung Markass, had been tested positive of covid-19 leading to his demise.

“We don’t even believe ourselves anymore as people living around Bundung Markass. Some of us might not even know if we are contracted with the virus because they said that the symptoms start from 2-14 days,” said Abdou Colley, a resident of Bundung Markass.

Colley explained that some of the people around the area have left the place due to the fear that someone might contract the disease unknowingly.

Adama Sidibeh is another resident of Bundung Markass Center. For him, they are totally in a state of fear and panic, noting that they don’t know who are infected with the virus now.

“Most of the people around this vicinity do not know who is who anymore. Because we don’t know the people who might be infected and might not be infected with the virus,” he said.

“Two of my people left their houses to another place due to the fear they are facing right now,” he said.

Jainaba Jawara also shared similar experience, noting that she doesn’t trust herself anymore much more another person following the news of the demise of the Bangladeshi.

Jawara explained that what some of them want to do now is to go to the hospital for self quarantine.

“I advise myself and some of my friends to go to the hospital for checkup, because we all don’t trust anyone now due to what had happened around our area,” she said.

Lamin Jabbi, another resident of Bundung Markass, noted that some of them are just putting their fate in God and nothing else.

“We are all currently confused, fear and panic after the news of the death of the Bangladeshi. Some of us are just having fate in God and we hope that such disease will not claim many lives in the country,” he said.

Meanwhile, the 70-year-old Bangladeshi arrived in The Gambia by A’ Sky Airline, with three other people on 14 March, 2020. He departed Bangladesh on 4 March and passed through Thailand, Ethiopia and Malawi, where they attended a religious confab.

He then flew back to Ethiopia on 10 March, Mali and Senegal on 11 March where he spent three days on transit at Senegal’s airport before arriving in The Gambia on the 14 March 2020.

Ministry of Health’s reactions

The Ministry of Health intends to fumigate and lockdown Bundung Markass Center, as Gambia’s second case of Covid-19 was identified from the said premises.

According to Modou Njai, director of Health Promotion and Education, three nurses, a doctor and orderly from Bundung Maternal and Child Health Hospital who met the patient (the Bangladeshi man) are on quarantine, adding that samples would be collected from all high risk contacts.

Bakau embarks on mass testing amid covid-19 cases

Monday, May 4, 2020

After the confirmation of few newly reported cases of covid-19 in Bakau, the Ministry of Health on Sunday embarked on a massive collection of samples from residents of Bakau – designed to stem the spread of the virus.

The mass sample collection exercise was held at both Bakau Community Center and Bakau Lower and Upper Basic School. It is expected to end today.

“We are doing this exercise in the community of Bakau to help their inhabitants to know their status about the virus. We are urging all the people of Bakau especially those around Cape Point where some of the new confirmed cases emanated from to come out and be tested so as to know their status,” Buba Darboe, programme officer Health Communication told The Point.

He added that it is also very important for one to know his/her status earlier to ascertain whether they have been infected with the virus or not for self and family protection.

“If a patient knows his/her covid-19 status earlier, it helps him/her and government as well. This is important as it helps the community of Bakau and the country at large to minimise the danger surrounding covid-19.”

“Some victims of the confirmed cases of covid-19 have never experience the signs and symptoms of the coronavirus. One might have the disease without experiencing some of the signs and symptoms.”

Buba, who also doubles as the vice chair, Community Risk Engagement Committee of Ministry of Health urged the community of Bakau to come out and get tested so as to help the Gambia in its quest of fighting coronavirus.

For his part, Sherriff Gomez, former minister of Youth and Sports, said that that was a very important exercise for not only Bakau but the entire country.

“This exercise is very important for the community because there is a discovery around the people of Bakau. We are in a state of emergency and there should be an enforcement of total lockdown from government so as to conduct a mandatory testing exercise.”

He added that it is very important for one to get tested so as to help them as a people and the country at large to know their status about covid-19, adding that people need to get tested so as to get help, get isolated and treated.

Modou Lamin Sidibeh, a native of Bakau who came for voluntary testing observed that the turnout was a bit low. He opined that this may be lack of enough communication within the community.

“There should be a proper communication so that people can know what is happening in their community. Coronavirus is real and deadly as it claimed so much many lives including in The Gambia.”

He called on the government to continue with such exercises as it could play an important role in the fight against coronavirus in the country.
