The President of Senegal, Macky Sall has begun a preventative two-week quarantine.

The man went into isolation after coming into contact with a coronavirus case, although the leader has tested negative for the disease, his office said.

The Agence France Presse, AFP, reports that the West African country has reported more than 6,100 COVID-19 infections and 93 deaths, and a state of emergency in place since March is being slowly lifted.

“In line with medical advice on the matter, President Sall has put himself in quarantine for two weeks from Wednesday,” spokesman Seydou Gueye said in a short televised statement.

Since the pandemic erupted earlier this year a number of senior political figures worldwide have caught the disease, including British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was hospitalised and has now recovered.
