Dear editor,

I would like to inform the Ministry of foreign affairs about the presence of Gambians in Wuhan right now. The rationale behind this notification is to inform the Ministry and the Government as a concerned citizen the present situation of Gambian students in Wuhan, China.

It’s confirmed that all Gambian students residing in WUHAN are safe and healthy without any cause for panic right now. But also its important to notify the authorities as students over there right now are restricted from exiting their rooms as per safety precautions offered by health experts and the duration of not going outside is not known which may result to lack of money for the students to buy daily food items or shortage of food commodities causing prices soaring up.

Then they may need absolute support and intervention of others for their upkeep in the near future if the situation persists. During this time and moment we are praying for China to get to normal operations free from virus.

Our hearts and love are with China and the Chinese people and wish them well. God bless China, God bless the Gambia. At least right now 13 countries have vowed to evacuate their citizens from Wuhan, China. The Chinese health experts are working hard with the support of their government to control the virus. Support and solidarity of the world is required to get out of this situation

Present situation about the Corona Virus
The outbreak of Novel Corona virus is rapidly spreading, the Chinese authorities said recently, as the official account of known cases jumped nearly 60 percent overnight and the death toll is greater than 100 for the first time. It’s reported that 106 people had died from the corona virus that is believed to have originated in the central city of Wuhan and is spreading across the country.

The figures reported on the past two stated that the death toll was 81, while the number of confirmed cases increased from 2,835 on Monday to 4,515 on Tuesday, according to the National Health Commission. Most of the cases have been confirmed in the central Chinese province of Hubei, the epicenter of the outbreak, where several cities, including Wuhan, have been placed under what amounts to a lockdown. Of the total cases, 2,714 are in Hubei. Thailand has reported 14 cases of infection; Hong Kong has eight; the United States, Taiwan, Australia and Macau have five each; Singapore, Japan, South Korea and Malaysia each have reported four; France has three; Canada and Vietnam have two; and Nepal, Cambodia and Germany each have one. There have been no deaths outside China.

God bless China, god bless Gambia.
