Three ministers in the Gambian government have tested positive for COVID-19, according to the government.

The State House of the Gambia tweeted on Sunday that Finance minister Mambureh Njie, Petroleum and Energy minister Fafa Sanyang, and Agriculture minister Amie Fabureh all tested positive for the virus.

The Gambian President Adama Barrow, announced last week he planned to self-isolate after vice-president Asatru Touray tested positive for the virus.

The Sunday tweet also reminded the public of “the compulsory wearing of face masks, temporary closure of non-essential public places and the prohibition of public and social gatherings.”

The country’s air and land borders have been closed since March. Gambia, a country with a population of about two million people, has recorded 498 cases of COVID-19 and nine deaths, according to the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center

What is more frightening is that the world is inffected by covid-19, yet no one is bothering to find out how it came to life!

Cancer/Malaria/Ebola cause deaths & every effort was deployed to find their origin, thus treatment

Why are world scientists not right on spot in China, but working blindly from afar, to understand covid-19?

All the world is concerned about are masks & penalties for not waring them & some countries kill people who don't!

Why is China so evil enjoying world deaths, fear while making money, yet gives no acces to the zone where corona virus came to life?

Why is the world not calling China to responsibility, why go along blindly as if China has no part in giving solution to this nightmare?

You are right! Akot
China refused western scientists to go into China to investigate the China flu !!!

It sold and donated defective protective gear to Spain, and other European countries, and they died in thousands!!

And African leaders are naively courting China for protective gear, and medicine against China flu, which has resurged in that country!!!

These are news in the public domain...!!!!
China must pay for deadly negligence in the spread of China Flu...!
