Two week after the World Health Organization issued a warning about the resurgence of Covid-19 in Africa, Senegal’s health ministry has raised alarm that hospitals in the capital Dakar are becoming overwhelmed due to a surge in Coronavirus cases.

The West African country has suffered a third wave of virus infections in recent weeks, with cases rising from a few dozen a day late last month to about 1,700 cases daily in July.

The country’s Health ministry spokesman Mamadou Ndiaye also noted that labs were “overwhelmed because of high demand” thereby struggling to cope with a rise in demand for tests

Also, a senior public health official said medical staff in the city were burned out and that almost 99% of hospital beds were occupied..

There are however speculations that President Macky Sall may be forced to impose tighter restrictions to limit the spread of the virus.
