        First death due to covid19 in Mauritania: return this day of March 30

        By AMADOU SY - March 31, 2020

        Amazing, Mauritania has just recorded its first death due to covid19. The information was made public through a dispatch from the official agency around 8 p.m. It will be confirmed by Dr Ndiaye Amadou, head of the coronavirus isolation site in Mauritania on the set of the 9:30 pm television news from the national channel. The number of cases rises to 6 cases including 2 cured, 1 death and three under treatment.

        The 48-year-old victim had been confined since March 16, the date of his arrival on an Air France flight. The canvas is bubbling in Mauritania. According to the Minister of Health, Dr Nedhirou Mohamed Hamed, the lady is Franco-Mauritanian and it was only yesterday that she had discomfort. It got worse this morning and she died in the ambulance before arriving at the hospital. The Death due to covid19 occurred at 12 noon.

        After 14 days

        Later in the evening on the day of 9:30 p.m., Dr Ndiaye explains the covid19 test on this case is post mortem. The announcement of this death due to covid19 and its circumstances continue to flow again and saliva. Dr. Ndiaye maintains that "14 days is the incubation period on which the scientists agreed". So at the end of this period, if the person does not show signs, he is simply released and can go about his business without undergoing a test.

        "Corona is a virus that is sneaky and has not finished revealing its secrets," says Dr. Ndiaye.

        It is precisely this point that divides on social networks. Everyone has their own comment. According to Dr. Ndiaye Head of isolation covid19 website in Mauritania, "this case appeared after the 14 th day. He's vicious. " And to the doctor to continue “incubations of up to thirty days have been described. Research is underway and we will learn more when the epidemic is at its peak. ”

        Finally, Dr. Ndiaye believes that "corona is a virus that is sneaky and has not finished revealing its secrets. Even without symptoms, you can contaminate, hence the isolation that is recommended. ”


        The first consequence of this death due to covid19 is the extension of the duration of confinement. So we go from 14 to 21 days.

        The second consequence is the beginning of psychosis on the canvas. The communication from the Ministry of Health in recent days is questioned. Already, the daily press release which usually falls at 6 p.m. has not arrived on time. Then the SiteRep (Situation Report) made by the Ministry of Health with the help of the WHO arrives at 8:50 pm in the mails box by mentioning no new cases, even less a death.

        Damocles sword

        An hour before, a circular from the Ministry of Health was published . Health workers are threatened with sanctions if they disclose information. “It has been given to me to note that health executives disseminate information which is detrimental to the national effort to control the covid pandemic19. Any deviation "will be firmly penalized according to the regulations in force" specifies the Minister of Health, through this circular.


        It should be noted that an internet user had announced the death of a lady who had been in confinement for 14 days (the one whose death will be confirmed in the evening). It was 12.51 p.m. He had this information from the medical profession.

        A few days before, the circumstances of the identification of case number five (5) had put Dr Diawara in the spotlight. The latter had contradicted the Minister of Health, through a Facebook post and leaked whatsapp audio. Observers believe the ministry's circular is a reaction to these two events. In any case, the medical profession is invited to observe a reservation, on pain of being hit with sanctions.

        At the end of this day, Mauritania counts six (6) cases including two (2) cured, three (3) under treatment and one death. According to health authorities, 75 contact cases have been identified and are contained. This figure does not include the contact cases of case number six (6) whose death is due to covid19, it should be remembered.

        Since the appearance of covid19 in Mauritania, a series of measures have been taken to limit the spread of the virus. Shops, borders and cafes are closed. Interurban traffic is interrupted but we continue to pile up like sardines in public transport, despite the ministry's decision which prohibits overcharging.

This country bordering Senegal has not declared a positive case since ... on April 09. COVID-19, which appeared in Mauritania on March 13, was then diagnosed in six other people, while 913 tests were carried out.

              In fact, the fifth case is a Ka?di sheriff who stayed in Senegal before returning home on March 19. He was declared cured on Friday April 17 and joined 5 patients who tested negative after harboring the virus in their bodies. The country has lamented only one death and hopes to never return to the disease.

              However, it should be noted that 752 people are still in segregation. This means that the Mauritanian authorities are careful not to declare victory, even if it must be admitted that it is a feat that the country owes to the measures taken very early to deal with the disease.

              In addition to closing its borders with Senegal, Morocco and Mali, the decision was made to place in quarantine for 14 days, anyone from a country where the pandemic is raging. A curfew from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. has been declared. The cafes and restaurants closed, the big Friday prayer has been suspended while all rallies are prohibited. The courses are not to be outdone…
