The Gambia government has denied reports that it has bought a large consignment of condoms to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country, calling it “false”. 

Weeks ago, a story was trending on social media accusing the Barrow administration of importing condoms amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

However government spokesman, Ebrima G Sankareh, said in a press statement that : “It has come to the attention of The Gambia Government that a false story on procurement of condoms is trending on social media for all the wrong reasons.

” The story is fatally false and simply calculated by detractors to sway attention from Government’s genuine efforts to tackle the Covid:19 viral Pandemic.
