On May 24, Radio Dabanga reported that Sudan’s Minister of Health has acknowledged that “the actual number of Covid-19 cases is higher than the official data". So far, the highest official number of cases has been reported in Khartoum state.

Radio Dabanga’s editorial independence means that we can continue to provide factual updates about political developments to Sudanese and international actors, educate people about how to avoid outbreaks of infectious diseases, and provide a window to the world for those in all corners of Sudan. Support Radio Dabanga for as little as €2.50, the equivalent of a cup of coffee.
