Puntland is not Coronavirus-free, according to discrete information obtained by Warsame Digital Media. There are at least two persons now suffering from the virus in Garowe alone, based on the information provided by people, who are familiar with the infected persons. These sick individuals aren’t in isolation and still are at large. The probability is that there could be more people with similar infections. But, nobody knows for sure how many others are out there as there is no capability in Puntland Health Sector to test people for Coronavirus infections.
It looks, therefore, that people within the Somali diaspora know better who is suffering from the deadly virus among their family members, relatives and friends here at home in Somalia.
This news reminds me of a recent interview by Burundi Health Minister, who had stated that the reason why Burundi didn’t have a single person reportedly infected was that Burundi didn’t have test kits to gauge into the existence of infected persons. That statement obviously holds the truth here too.
People should stay at home to avoid public gathering and often wash hands.
