Covid-19 In Cameroon: 40 More Deaths Within 24 Hours

Within 24 hours, 40 people have died of covid-19 pandemic in Cameroon
As of May 7, 2020, 2,267 Covid-19 cases have been reported in Cameroon, 1,002 recoveries and 108 deaths.

Reacting to the outbreak, member of Parliament Honrobale Nourane Foster accused the governmemt of delaying a response to her request to act in the fight against Coronavirus in Cameroon.

A request for authorization submitted 30 days ago by a member of Parliament has remained unanswered and is a SCANDAL! How do you want us to be Republicans if you can’t be objective workers too?” Nourane questioned in a Facebook post
Cameroon remains one of the hardest hit countries in Sub-Saharan Africa after South Africa

Some days ago Prime minister Dion Ngute announced recent measures including the opening of bars with the prerogative that customers observe social distancing and wear face masks, the lifting of orders for mandatory number of passengers per taxi and the suspension of general accounting audits.

But Covid-19 figures revealed by France trade advisers are different from those revealed by the Ministry of Public Health.

During the second month of the outbreak, health minister said on April 25, 2020, positive cases were 1,621 and 786 cured.

But the reports by France’s foreign trade advisers affirm that there were 1,396 confirmed cases with 350 deaths

Cameroonians are worried from both ends; They’re questioning the sources of France’s foreign trade advisers, and how sure they should be about official figures put out by the Ministry of public health

Some weeks ago, we published a closed chat with a health source in Yaounde who revealed hidden stories and pointed reason that the government is concealing actual figures and cases of Coronavirus in Cameroon.

Our source, an official working with the team charged with Covid-19 patients in Yaounde, said there are many more cases of Coronavirus in Cameroon than official records put it.
