Credit : Momodou Sabally / Daily Observer News RSF is particularly concerned about Momodou Sabally, who was fired as director-general of Gambia Radio and Television Services (GRTS) on 8 November and was arrested by the National Intelligence Agency later the same day, and Bakary Fatty, a GRTS journalist who was also arrested on 8 November. Both are still held. Their arrests, which came just days after Jammeh warned the media that he would tolerate no criticism in connection with the elections, are clearly the result of the autocratic president’s annoyance over perceived political slights. When Sabally was brought before a Banjul court 11 November, he was accused of causing the state to sustain economic losses when presidential affairs minister in 2014 – a charge that was already brought against him and then dismissed in 2015. He refused to enter a plea when he appeared in court again on 29 November. No charge has so far been brought against Fatty, who has still not been able to see his lawyer. He is now being held in a completely illegal manner because, under Gambian law, he should have been released within 72 hours in the absence of any charges. The state broadcaster’s news coverage seems to have upset the regime. A few days before the arrests of Sabally and Fatty, GRTS ran a story about the opposition, which for the first time has managed to unite by behind a single candidate, Adama Barrow. It replaced a previously scheduled story about an event held by the First Lady. “Aside from the illegality of the methods used, these arbitrary arrests and proceedings are a deliberate political bid to control the main state media outlet just days ahead of the election,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “The president is sending a threatening message, an act of censorship of the national TV broadcaster.” There have been other examples of the regime’s current paranoia towards the media. The photographer Alhagie Manka was held from 10 to 16 November for taking photos of members of the ruling party’s youth wing without accreditation. On 9 November – the day that it was confirmed that Jammeh was running for another term – Yunus Salieu, a journalist with the pro-government Daily Observer, was arrested for taking photos with his mobile phone and was held for 40 hours. The security services thought he was going to send the photos to an anti-Jammeh campaign on social networks. Gambia is ranked 145th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Eighty-nine percent of people who died had underlying health conditions.Thirty-three people who died were over the age of 65; four people who died were between the ages of 41 to 65 years old, and two people who died were between the ages of 18 to 40 years old. Thirty-one people had underlying health conditions including 27 people over the age of 65, three people between the ages of 41 to 65 years old and one person between the ages of 18 to 40 years old. Five deaths were reported by the City of Pasadena and two deaths were reported by the City of Long Beach.“Every day as we report the number of lives lost to COVID-19 we are reminded about the need to do everything we can to slow the spread of this disease,” said county health director Barbara Ferrer. “We mourn the loss of members of our collective community, and our hearts go out to their loved ones as they grieve. As we learn more about the virus it becomes clear that there are many asymptomatic people across the county that are capable of spreading COVID-19 to others. Our strategies moving forward need to ask everyone to keep their physical distance from each other, wear face coverings when in contact with others, and stay home as much as possible.”The department continues to receive a backlog of test results. In an effort to expand testing capacity, many new labs are responding to the emergency and Public Health is working with them to ensure that they have the proper reporting systems in place. Until this reporting issue is resolved, there may be periodic increases in positive cases and total cases due to unevenness in daily reporting.Health officials continue to remind everyone that if you are ill, even with mild symptoms, please self- isolate at home for 7 days and until you are fever and symptom free for 72 hours. If you have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 or is presumed to be infected with COVID-19, you must quarantine for 14 days from your last contact with that individual. Individuals who are elderly, have underlying health conditions or are pregnant may be at higher risk of serious illness and should contact their doctor as soon as they are sick.The best protection against COVID-19 is to wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands, self-isolate if you are sick, practice physical distancing (especially by staying at home) and wear a clean face covering when out in the public procuring or providing essential services. N95 and surgical masks should only be used by healthcare workers, first responders and essential workers providing care for people who are ill.The current Health Officer Order extends the previous Health Officer Order through May 15 and requires essential businesses to provide a cloth face covering for all employees to wear while performing duties that involve contact with other employees and or the public and to post physical distancing plans. The public is required to wear a face covering to enter essential businesses as well.
