In the face of the health emergency affecting the entire planet, the Cuomo Cardio-Pediatric Centre in Dakar is preparing to play an active role in Senegal, where 38 positive cases have been detected to date.

The CCPC thus aligns itself with the Senegalese hospital offer which is urgently reinforcing its reception capacity. In the coming days, the centre will focus only on the most urgent cardiac cases in order to better welcome patients with the COVID-19 virus. 

This anticipation comes at a crucial moment in the pandemic, with a peak, as observed in Europe, not to be ruled out in West Africa.
