It added that in recent weeks, the country saw a rise in new infections.

Togo is experiencing new outbreaks of the epidemic in the central and northern regions, Djibril Mohaman, the National Coordinator for COVID-19 response, told a press conference on Wednesday.

“Over the coming two weeks, there will be an increase in confirmed cases after the monitoring of the contacts,’’ he said.

In mid-July, the Togolese government began to gradually lift preventive measures, as data then showed that the COVID-19 situation in the country had stabilised.
