Relationship to the deceased:
On March 17 March Burkina Faso recorded its first coronavirus death. The authorities confirmed that the patient was Ms. Rose Marie Compaore, who was the first vice president of the parliament. She died aged 62 and was said to have diabetes, an underlying health condition. President Marc Roch Kabore and Speaker of the National Assembly, Alassane Bala Sakande, were among those that sent condolences to the family via social media platform Twitter. “This tragic event calls us all to recognize the scale and seriousness of the problem which confronts us all,” said Martial Ouedraogo, Burkina Faso’s COVID-19 response coordinator. “This is a very contagious illness that is potentially fatal and that for now has no treatment aside from prevention,” he stressed.
