Senegal’s health ministry has said that two new coronavirus infections were confirmed on Wednesday.

That brings to four the number of patients with the virus in the country after earlier recording two cases.

Health officials said one of the two new patients is a 33-year-old British woman who arrived in the capital city, Dakar, last month on a flight from London.

The other new confirmed case was a 68-year-old woman, a French resident who also arrived last month.

Her spouse was the the 80-year-old French national who tested positive for the virus this week, according to health officials.

So far Africa has recorded a total of 26 cases of the deadly virus, after a slow rate of outbreak.

More than 90,000 cases and over 3,000 deaths have been recorded in some 60 countries worldwide.

Victims of coronavirus often suffer from respiratory illness. The virus is a global public health emergency, according to the World Health Organisation.

The WHO has advised that people stay at home if they begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and a slight runny nose, until they recover.
