Senegalese President Macky Sall is quarantining for two weeks after coming into contact with someone who has since tested positive for the coronavirus, state television said on Thursday.


The measure is precautionary as an initial COVID-19 test of Sall has come back negative, it said.


Senegal has so far reported 6,129 confirmed coronavirus cases and 93 deaths.
