Daily Life in Post-Pandemic Senegal

Episode 3 – Covid 19, Fear and Social breakdown

Post Pandemic Senegal Series

This 3rd film about daily life in post-pandemic Senegal takes a close look at the reality of Covid-19 in Senegal: from lockdowns through medical care and the vaccination programme. We meet people who give the inside story of how the biomedical policies of lockdowns created a “Hellish circle” and ruptured bonds across society at many levels. This created a huge lack of trust in the state among young people, which means that very many became scared of Covid vaccination – as we see, with medical staff urging people to get vaccinated, in front of empty streets.

Collateral Global has commissioned 6 short films from the Senegalese journalist and photographer Mamadou Ndiaye. These will look across the range of impacts of the political, economic and social responses to the Covid-19 pandemic in Senegal, a series called ‘Daily Life in Post-Pandemic Senegal’.
