Coronavirus: Good news, Togo’s only case is in “satisfactory” condition

(Togo First) - Five days after Togo’s first case of coronavirus was reported, public authorities inform that the patient is in a “satisfactory clinical state,” without “any fever or symptoms that motivated their hospitalization.”

Regardless of the positive evolution, the government said yesterday that treatment is continued, by following standard protocol.  

Moreover, subjects who came in contact with the infected patient show no symptoms so far. 

No other case of infected individuals reported in Togo so far 

Despite the good news, Togolese health authorities urge populations to keep following preventive measures to curb the propagation of the virus (wear a mask, cover coughs, sneeze into the elbow or tissue, clean hands frequently, avoid touching eyes, nose, mouth, avoid contact with wild animals, etc.). 

To date, nearly 120,000 cases and more than 4200 deaths have been reported worldwide (more than 100 countries). According to the WHO, the fatality rate for the disease is 3.4%. 

Recently, in Africa, DRC and Burkina Faso reported their first cases. 

In China where the disease originated and which is the most affected by the virus, authorities seem to have halted its propagation, with 70% of infected subjects having recovered. On the contrary, Iran and Italy are greatly suffering from the pandemics. Italy has been quarantined.

In Togo, numbers to call to report eventual cases are: +228 22 22 20 73 / +228 91 67 42 42.
