Senegal is offering The Gambia and Guinea-Bissau 10,000 vaccines each “as a form of African solidarity” with its smaller neighbours, President Macky Sall has said.

Senegal recently purchased its first 200,000 doses from Sinopharm and national rollout began on Tuesday.

In The Gambia, more than 4,500 people are known to have contracted coronavirus since the outbreak began.

In Guinea-Bissau, this number is just over 3,000.
