One death in Madagascar and one new case in Majunga – the situation is getting worse

Yesterday, Madagascar has announced its first coronavirus death. He is the first Malagasy citizen to succumb to coronavirus. He had developed a severe form of the virus. He was a parking warden employed at Morafeno Hospital in Toamasina.

And a few minutes ago, Professor Vololontiana Hanta announced. There is a new case in Majunga. This is an asymptomatic case.

This is a person living in Antananarivo who is mission to Mahajanga since 11 may 2020. And he's an agent of the Department of Justice.

In addition, it also announced 17 other new cases detected today in Toamasina. Therefore, There are 18 new cases detected this day, on 134 test done.

It should be noted that the large island currently has a total of 322 cases of coronavirus, including one death and a serious form. There are a 202 patients in treatment 119 Healings. More than 5 500 PCR tests have been done there since the beginning of the epidemic. So we have a positivity rate of about 09%.

The situation in the country is getting worse, and the end still seems a long way off. Yet, the Malagasy people thought they had passed the worst.

Causes of this 1ER Death

According to the announcement of the President of the Republic Andry Rajoelina last night, this was a diabetic patient. He also had high blood pressure. Therefore, he was unable to receive treatment with Covid-Organics.

By the way, he also claimed that not all new people infected with coronavirus drank Covid-Organics. Yet the remedy was distributed for free.

Toamasina becomes epidemic epicenter in Madagascar

The last three days, we recorded 84 new cases of covid-19. Among his 84 new cases, it was announced 18 today. 21 cases were announced yesterday and the 45 remaining were announced on Saturday 16 may.

Faced with the sharp acceleration of the epidemic, Toamasina and Antananarivo remain at the heart of retaliating. Almost all of these confirmed cases were recorded in these two localities.

On the 45 new cases announced last Saturday 16 are contact cases located in Isotry, contaminated by one person. And on the 21 cases announced yesterday, 16 were confirmed positive in Antananarivo. But they all came from Toamasina. Despite strict entry and exit bans in coronavirus-affected districts, they were able to reach the province of Antananarivo. We are talking about a phenomenon of corruption. According to the ORC spokeswoman, special travel permissions would be sold.

Call for caution

As announced by President Andry Rajoelina last night, we are currently entering the winter. So we have to doubling our prevention measures.

Given the rapid increase in the number of positive cases and the worsening situation, Malagasy people, especially the inhabitants of Antananarivo and Toamasina are obliged to strictly comply with the barrier measures.

We all have to take care of each other. And everyone must take responsibility for the fight against this virus.

For the people of Majunga, it's time to take things seriously. Let's be careful and respect the barrier measures. With caution, we'll get away with it easily.
