The country is yet to record any case of the deadly virus but believe better hygiene could help them minimize or avoid the risk of an outbreak.

So far nine countries have recorded coronavirus cases in Africa, with the total being at least 80 patients.

Countries such as Egypt, Algeria, Nigeria, South Africa, and Senegal are among those to have recorded more than one case.

Egypt is leading with cases rising up to 48 in the past few days.

The country also recorded the continent's first death due to the virus.

The patient was, however, a German tourist who was receiving treatment in the Northern Africa country for the virus, before succumbing to the disease.
