The Gambia has on Wednesday 6th January, 2021, recorded six new cases of the deadly coronavirus, taking the total number of COVID-19 cases confirmed in the country to three thousand eight hundred and twelve. 

The median age of the new cases is 29.5. All but two (2) of the newly confirmed cases are linked to the latest deceased case. No new COVID-19 related death was recorded.
