The Gambia has registered ninety-five new cases of COVID-19 bringing the total number of cases ever confirmed in the country to four hundred and ninety-eight. One new death was also registered which also brings the total number of COVID-19 related deaths to nine.

According to the Health Ministry Officials, this is the highest reported number of cases of COVID-19 within a single day, since the outbreak of the Virus in the country on 17th March 2020; that currently there are five hundred and twenty-nine persons in quarantine, with four hundred and fourteen as active cases, nine deaths and forty-three probable cases.

Modou Njai, the Director of Health Promotion and Education at the Ministry of Health said only a fraction of the new cases were imported ones; that the bulk of the new cases were locally transmitted.
