The West African Cement plant (WACEM) has shut down its grinding plant in Togo for two weeks. The 1.8Mta Tabligbo plant has closed to halt the spread of COVID-19.

The Ministry of Trade and Industry released an official statement saying: "On October 30, 2020, the national coordinator in charge of the response against COVID-19 informed me about an outbreak at the WACEM, a company located in the free trade zone."

The plant is situated 80km from Lomé, in the Yoto prefecture. The latest outbreak indicates a return of the virus in the interior part of the country. Until now the Grand Lomé region was the main area for the coronavirus.
