Covid-19 Cameroon: North West Region Records First Case

Cameroon’s North West region confirmed its first Coronavirus case Monday, April 20, and thus became the ninth out of Cameroon’s ten regions to be affected by the deadly virus.

According to a release from the North West regional Governor Adolphe Lele Lafrique, the patient is a Cameroonian resident in Douala and originates from the North West region.

He arrived in Bamenda on April 15, 2020, in a private car, after which he asked for a Coronavirus test to be conducted on him in Santa.

He was then referred to the Bamenda Regional Hospital, where he reportedly presented himself on April 16 for the sample collection.

Five days after his samples were sent to the Yaounde Centre Pasteur for screening, the release says his results came out. He tested positive for the Coronavirus and has been attended to by regional health officials.

Some experts say this situation will further cause fear amongst the region's population as they will now have to grapple with the insecurity that prevails in that part of the country because of the Anglophone and health crises.

In the meantime, Governor Adolphe Lele Lafrique has called on the population to continue scrupulously observing COVID-19 barrier measures to remain safe and save other lives.
