There is a strong indication that lawmakers in Cameroon may be at a great risk of having contacted the dreaded Coronavirus.
This follows the confirmation that their 80 years old President of the National Assembly since 1992, Cavayé Yéguié Djibril has tested positive for coronavirus.
Bittertruth Media gathered that Elder Djibril had returned from France, and disobeyed Cameroon’s Health Ministry’s 14-day quarantine policy, potentially endangering 167 Parliamentarians (MPs).
It is unclear as at press time, whether all the affected MPs have taken to self-isolation or not.
However, Bittertruth Media reports that as at Monday, the total number of COVID-19 cases in Cameroon had risen to 56, with 16 positive cases; nine were from Douala, six in Yaounde and one in Bafoussam.
This was as announced by Cameroon’s Minister of Public Health, Dr Malachie Manaouda.
