Sierra Leone reports seven COVID-19 related deaths


Sierra Leone reported seven COVID-19 related deaths within the past 48 hours, bringing the West African country’s pandemic response to a critical phase, the health authorities said Sunday.

The country also recorded 75 positive COVID-19 cases out of 556 samples in the past 24 hours, said Solomon Jamiru, spokesperson for the National Corona Virus Emergency Response Center.

The 34 Military Hospital, one of the main referral centers for suspected and positive COVID-19 cases, cannot accommodate more cases, and the country’s healthcare system is not prepared if cases get critical, Jamiru said.

As of Sunday, Sierra Leone has reported a total of 5,306 COVID-19 cases with 93 deaths.
