Coronavirus: From now on, all health workers must wear face masks

(Togo First) - Starting today, it is compulsory for all medical personnel in Togo to wear face masks, according to a recently released official statement.

The measure was taken a few days after some health workers at the Sylvanus Olympio teaching hospital came in contact with two Covid-19-infected individuals (the patients were diagnosed late and unfortunately died). After the incident, many members of the staff of the pneumology ward were quarantined. 

In addition to imposing the wearing of face masks for health workers, the official statement recommends it to civilians as well. 

To date, Togo has reported 84 cases of Covid-19; 52 have recovered, 27 still active, and five deaths.
