To Halt COVID Spread, Senegal Launches Bread Delivery During Ramadan


In Senegal, during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, the majority-Muslim population normally rushes to bakeries to buy bread for breaking the daily fast.  The coronavirus raised the risk of crowds at bakeries spreading the virus, which has more than 1,270 confirmed infections and at least 13 deaths in the West African nation.  To halt the pandemic, the government banned the sale of bread at shops and launched a delivery assistance program called "Sell Me Your Bread."  Estelle Ndjandjo reports from Dakar.
