As some Gambians perpetuate that COVID-19 is not a threat in the Gambia, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation banning those who have been in Brazil within the last 14 days from entering the United States in a bid to contain the spread of COVID-19 which is heading towards taking 100000 live in the US.

It is claimed that   the Centre for Disease Control in the US and the Department of Homeland Security have been collaborating to give advice to the President on how to handle COVID-19.

Diplomatically the Brazilian government is in the good books of the US President after the removal of the previous administration which tried to link up with China, India, Russia and South Africa to build a new economic bloc that had failed to endure.

To take such drastic action against Brazil confirms that the US president is convinced that Brazil’s infection figure of 363,000 cases and more than 22500 deaths is real.

Gambians are being encouraged by some to ignore the Pandemic instead of preventing it by taking all precautionary measures to make the Gambia an example to follow in employing a preventive strategy. COVID-19 is real. It is easier to prevent than to cure. Join the campaign to prevent it by listening to the advice of the medical practitioners .The life you save may be your own. Practice safe spacing and proper hygiene to keep the disease from spreading.

The President should be seen to take the front line with his Minister of Health, Justice and Interior to have a zoom conference with his appointed coordinator, the Mayor and Mayoress and Chairperson of Councils as well as the IGP and CDS to appeal to the Nation to give preventive measures a chance. The Nation should see a team approach with passionate leadership to fight the PANDEMIC.
