Senegalese Ministry of Health yesterday reported 177 positive new cases of covid-19, bringing the total to 1,886, with 715 recoveries, 19 deaths and 1151 under treatment.

Meanwhile the Senegalese supreme court on Friday rejected the request made by family members of covid-19 victims who died in the diaspora to be repatriated to Senegal for burial.

The reason given by the judges is that the virus is conterminous.

Senegal registered its first case on 2 March 2020.

Media reports have indicated so far 89 Senegalese in the diaspora have died due to the virus.
