Two Gambians have tested positive for coronavirus increasing the total number of confirmed cases to 57. 

The Ministry of Health officials told journalists that these are ‘imported’ cases as both infected individuals have recently returned from Senegal.  

“Case 056 is a Gambian, 19, who was taken into quarantine on the 27th June on his return from Senegal. He is epi-linked to Case 049 (travel companions from Senegal),” the Ministry of Health said.

“He initially tested inconclusive (probable) on June 29th at the commencement of his mandatory quarantine period.”

“He was resampled on July 2nd and tested positive for COVID-19 on July 3rd,” the Health ministry added.
