                On Thursday, the Sudanese Ministry of Health reported the first coronavirus patient who was infected through contact, bringing the number of confirmed cases of the virus to eight. 800 Sudanese troops coming from Yemen are in quarantine. A minister and a state minister are still in self-isolation.

                The first seven coronavirus (Covid-19) cases were Sudanese and foreigners who came from abroad, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health Sarah Abdelazim said in a press statement on Thursday.

                The Red Sea state Ministry of Health has kept about 800 Sudanese army soldiers and paramilitaries of the Rapid Support Forces in quarantine after they arrived by sea to Port Sudan.

                  Just when Sudan needs its doctors the most, physicians battling the coronavirus across the country have found themselves under attack by policemen and have gone on strike in protest.

                  Hundreds more are threatening to join the action, as the threat of violence roils hospitals that fear cracking under the added strain after years of underinvestment.

                  There have only been 10 reported cases so far across the country, but with the virus being transmitted within the population, authorities fear worse is to come.

                  Medical staff complain that plain-clothed and uniformed policemen have repeatedly attacked doctors as they try to carry out their jobs.

                  The health ministry, however, is downplaying the issue and promising to draw up legislation to protect its workers.

                  Police have acknowledged the problem, but attributed the aggression to individual officers, stressing that its forces are disciplined and committed to dealing appropriately with civilians, including doctors. Yet attacks continue.
