New restrictive measures in Senegal in the face of the increase in cases

In Senegal, the relaxation of compliance with barrier gestures against the coronavirus is in the sights of the State.

After the state of emergency was lifted on June 29, new security measures were reinstalled on Friday, such as the compulsory wearing of masks, the ban on gatherings at beaches or sports grounds, and the ban of any demonstration on the public highway. Body lifting ceremonies, considered places of spread of the disease because of the crowds they draw, are thus banned.

These “decisions with immediate effect” were announced by the Minister of the Interior, Aly Ngouye Ndiaye, during a press conference in Dakar. Violators face fines and prison terms, he said.

The authorities claim to have observed “a relaxation of populations” in the application of measures against the new coronavirus.

Senegal has declared 11,175 cases of COVID 19 since March 2, including 232 deaths.
