“The General Public is hereby informed that the Lord Mayor tested positive for Covid19 Virus. He is in good spirits and has since been placed on isolation and is well on his way to recovery,” a statement from the KMC stated.
This is not the first time that Talib Bensouda has been exposed to COVID-19 testing. When the Coronavirus hits The Gambia back in March, Bensouda was tested, but that previous test turned out to be negative. His latest test turned out to be positive.
“The Council hereby reminds the General Public to take proactive measures and ensure that WHO and the Ministry of Health guidelines are followed. Let’s observe social distancing, Wear face mask and stop public gatherings,” the statement added.
