                      Mozambique: two-thirds of Covid-19 cases located on a Total group project
                      By Le Figaro with AFP
                      Posted 4 hours ago

                      About two-thirds of the 31 cases of Covid-19 confirmed in Mozambique are linked to the project to exploit an underwater gas field led by the French group Total in the far north of the country, according to official figures released on Thursday.

                      "The number of cases of Covid-19 (in the country) has increased today from 29 to 31," said Mozambican Ministry of Health spokeswoman Rosa Marlene, adding that no deaths were at lament to this day. "The two new positive cases come from the transmission network" of the province of Cabo Delgado (north), she said. The Mozambican National Institute of Health said on Wednesday that 19 of the 29 confirmed cases of contamination had their origin on the Total site.

                      The French oil group's project has been temporarily put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. Only essential activities such as site security are ensured. In a statement Thursday, Total said it had "put in place a continuity plan to minimize as much as possible the impact on the project of an event of this nature". "It is difficult to predict the evolution of the situation, but to date the timetable has been respected," added the group. Total's $ 25 billion megaproject is the first onshore development of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in Mozambique.

                      It is located in the province of Cabo Delgado, plagued since 2017 by an Islamist insurgency, which has left at least 900 dead, according to a count by the NGO Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (Acled), and caused the displacement of more than 150,000 people, according to authorities. The jihadists advocate the application of Islamic law in this Muslim-majority province

                          This is a great opportunity for someone looking to work in a fast paced environment.
                          Text by: RFI

                          Rosa Marlene was also concerned about the fact that many Mozambicans continue not to respect the rules of confinement and social distance, behaviors that increase the risk of spreading the pandemic in the country. According to police data, since the implementation of the state of emergency in Mozambique, 260 people have been detained for disobedience and contempt for measures imposed by the state.

                          Yesterday, Amnesty International warned of the fact that millions of people are at risk of hunger in southern African countries due to imposed blocks to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Amnesty International has urged governments in the region to urgently adopt social protection measures to guarantee the right to food.

                          The international organization describes that in Mozambique, the local television station STV recorded cases of police accused of taking advantage of the state of emergency to invade and rob stores.

                          In total, Mozambique has tested 952 suspected cases of covid-19, 11,056 have been quarantined and 1,862 are being followed by health authorities.
