The country’s case tally stood at 11 confirmed cases all of who have been successfully treated and discharged, 74 others remained in quarantine. The same was the case with Eritrea where all 39 patients fully recovered, they have in turn rolled out random extensive testing starting in the capital Asmara and border towns as well as for frontline health workers.

Over in Mauritius, out of the 332 cases, 10 deaths were recorded whiles the remaining 322 all recovered as of May 11, the government portal dedicated to the pandemic announced.

Meanwhile, cases continue to rise across Africa as governments continue to roll out measures to contain spread of the virus.
