Three cabinet ministers in The Gambia have tested positive for coronavirus, according to a statement from the presidency.

President Adama Barrow last week went into self-isolation after Vice-President Isatou Touray tested positive for the virus.

Finance Minister Mambureh Njie, Petroleum and Energy Minister Fafa Sanyang and Agriculture Minister Amie Fabureh have also contracted the virus, the presidency said in a tweet:

The Gambia has so far confirmed nearly 500 coronavirus cases and nine deaths.

The government has made the wearing of face masks mandatory in public places and has also prohibited social gatherings.
