The Senegalese Ministry of Health yesterday registered 84 positive cases of covid-19, bringing the country’s total to 2,189; 23 deaths, 842 recoveries and 1,323 under treatment.

The Senegalese Christian Council in a press release informed the public that all churches should remain closed as daily cases of covid-19 increase.

The council’s press release followed President Macky Sall pronouncement on Monday that all worship places be re-opened.

Mosques were opened on Wednesday; however, the Tallene Family, the grandsons of Alajie Omar Foutiyou Tall opposed that decision, saying their mosque will remain closed until things improved.
