Meeting of Minister Di Maio with the Minister of Defense of Djibouti, Hassan Omar Mohamed Bourhan

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Luigi Di Maio, met today at the Farnesina with the Minister of Defence of Djibouti, Hassan Omar Mohamed Bourhan.

Minister Di Maio, first of all, expressed his solidarity with the Chikungunya epidemic and the massive floods that have hit Djibouti in recent weeks, recalling how Italy has promptly provided help by sending a humanitarian flight to support civil protection operations in the country.

For Italy, Djibouti is an element of stability and an important partner in the Horn of Africa, a region where historical changes are underway; our country is following the situation with the utmost attention, the Minister recalled. He added that Italy considers it is essential that a strategic partner like Djibouti can be a protagonist of this dynamic.

Finally, the owner of the Farnesina expressed satisfaction at how the dialogue between Italy and Djibouti has deepened in recent years, starting from the collaboration in the defence sector but also thanks to the strengthening of economic-commercial relations and numerous cooperation initiatives.

Botswana Registers First Suspected Case of Coronavirus

GABORONE, BOTSWANA – Botswana has registered its first suspected case of the deadly coronavirus. A person arriving from China aboard Ethiopian Airways showed symptoms consistent with the virus.

Botswana’s Ministry of Health said a man was detained at a local clinic soon after his flight from China landed at Gaborone’s Sir Seretse Khama Airport on Thursday.

The ministry said the unnamed male displayed symptoms consistent with the coronavirus but did not say what those symptoms were.

The country’s director of health services, Malaki Tshipayagae, said the patient has been isolated at a clinic in the capital as an investigation continues.

Meanwhile, the government has urged Botswana nationals to take precautions in order to avoid contracting the virus.

Nervousness

Mpho Marumo, a Gaborone resident, said there is panic after the first suspected case.

“We are doing all we can to take the necessary precautions, Marumo said. Our fear is that the virus might have spread already, as many people arrive from China, some undetected.”

The suspected case came as some Botswana nationals were holed up in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the virus outbreak.

Botswana has an estimated 500 nationals studying or working in China. A student who spoke on condition of anonymity said it had been a very difficult few days.

“I was supposed to leave to Botswana but my ticket was canceled, the student said. Following that, we are not allowed to go anywhere.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared a global health emergency as the death toll from the virus rose above 200 this week.

Coronavirus Concerns Spur Nigerian Authorities to Close Chinese Market in Abuja

ABUJA, NIGERIA – Nigerian officials raided and shut down a popular Chinese supermarket in Abuja this week over concerns about the spreading coronavirus.

The supermarket is a major gathering spot for Chinese citizens and expatriates living in the Nigerian capital. The aisles and checkout area of the Panda supermarket are usually packed with shoppers.

But all were empty Friday, two days after officials of Nigeria’s Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) closed the market.

The head of the commission, Babtunde Irukera, said the market was closed because of concern about imported products that could carry the coronavirus.

“The operatives of the place admitted that those things were imported from China, Irukera said. Our suspicion is not whether those products that we saw there are host carriers of the virus, but it was more of the fact that … is there a potential for a risk?”

Numbers climb

More than 200 people have died since the virus was confirmed in Wuhan, China, and nearly 10,000 others are infected and fighting symptoms that include fever and respiratory difficulties. The WHO has declared the coronavirus outbreak a global emergency.

So far, there have been no confirmed cases of the coronavirus on the African continent, although one suspected case has been reported in Botswana.

The head of the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekwazu, said the government was not taking any chances.

“The first thing we’re doing is learning everyday about critical aspects of the virus � how it is transmitted, how many people die from it, how many severe cases it causes, Ihekwazu said. There’s new information coming up every day. We’re working closely with [the World Health Organization] to identify specific measures for controlling the outbreak but also to advise government on what to do in terms of trade and travel and all of that.”

Officials of the supermarket declined to comment on the shutdown.

Other businesses

Meanwhile, Irukera of the FCCPC said the regulatory agency planned to visit other Chinese-run businesses in Nigeria that might pose a risk of the virus.

“We’ve identified some locations in Lagos that we’d also be reaching to try and stop the supply of these products, Irukera said. There’s a larger plan. I know that customs is on more sensitive alert � the ports authority, the ministry of health.”

Nigerian health authorities have begun screening Chinese nationals entering Nigeria, and they also have urged citizens traveling to China to suspend their trips indefinitely.
