Senegal has 24 hour tests readily available, temp screenings at every store, and no fighting over masks (they can’t believe we argue over this).
Global health (as we've known it) is dead From past work with Senegal's govt, this isn't surprising but still impressive to see * <24 hr test turnaround * universal masking * supported isolation of all positives * transparent data * clear response plan

It’s wonderful to see Senegal’s continued success protecting its residents from COVID19. It shows how important preparedness, clear communication, strong leadership and prioritizing the collective good are in dealing with a public health crisis.
Senegal is ranked as the 2nd best country 🌎 handling COVID 19 b/c: They relied on science, acted quickly, tackled stigma, mobilized communities…and here’s another BIG one we never hear about ...*INNOVATION* in Africa. 2/4
Wisdom from Senegal 🇸🇳 ⬇️ - Strong political leadership - Solid preparedness/response plans (test results <24hrs!) - Support to HCW/patients - Superb communicators/innovations to scale - Stepped-up surveillance ⁦⁦⁦
We need to elevate African success stories. Thanks to for talking with me about why #Senegal warrants inclusion in the pantheon of countries that have responded well to #COVID19.

Senegal crushed it and deserves recognition for their exemplary response to the pandemic
Senegal snagged the No. 2 slot in a recent analysis looking at how 36 countries around the world have handled the Covid-19 pandemic – the United States landed near the bottom: 31st.
Senegal ranked No2 in a recent analysis looking at how 36 countries have handled the pandemic. The country ramped up testing capacity quickly, creating mobile labs that can return results within 24 hours – or as quickly as two hours in some cases
I remember reading a NYT editorial board opinion piece that argued for “saving” African countries from COVID. They don’t need saving. Countries are perfectly capable themselves. Proof? Senegal ranked #2 in #covid response. U.S.? Near the bottom.
What we can learn from #Senegal: Despite limited resources, Senegal is topping rankings of countries that have tackled the #coronavirus well.
Truly wonderful to see Senegal’s continued success protecting its residents from COVID19... ⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ ⁦
The best thing we could do get the economy moving again is crush the virus. But our national response was & continues to be disaster, ranked among the worst, as reported The U.S. has 4.5% of global population but 20% of global COVID deaths.
Nice work all in Senegal. It’s not just New Zealand and other Asians countries tackling covid successfully.
"Test results come back within 24 hours, or even faster. Hotels have been transformed into quarantine units [etc.] This isn't the pandemic response in South Korea, New Zealand or another country held up as a model of coronavirus containment success."
Love to see it! Sub-saharan Africa drawing on experience from past outbreaks and showing the merits of common sense public health approaches in fighting #COVID19. Senegal leading by example. Humilty & discipline - doing much with little. 👏👏👏
In Senegal, daily Covid-19 cases are on the decline following a robust response with quick testing turnarounds, widespread mask distribution, and innovative virtual programs. The country was among the first in the region to suspend football activities
Lesson in leadership: Why #Senegal is outpacing the #USA in tackling #Covid19 pandemic “the country has shown that it doesn't take a world-class health system and gobs of money to keep the virus in check.”
There’s a lot of news about which countries’ #COVID19 responses are falling flat, but one West African nation is getting recognized and praised for its handling of the virus.
So much to learn from Senegal. #globaldev #covid19

Senegal: 16 million people, scarce medical infrastructure—and only 14,000 total cases of Covid-19. The state of Georgia has only 10 million people, but has had 265,215 cases.

Senegal, a developing country with a GDP of just $24 billion, has contained COVID much more effectively than France (GDP: $2.78 trillion), the UK (GDP: $2.85 trillion), and the US (GDP: 22.54 trillion). Something is very wrong in the West.

In Senegal "it's unimaginable that a person would reject wearing a mask to protect the people around them." Senegal has lessons for many other countries in responding to epidemics.
