ANTANANARIVO: Madagascar President Andry Rajoelina on Sunday said two lawmakers — one member of the senate and one deputy — had died after becoming infected with coronavirus. Eleven other deputies and 14 senators had also tested positive for the virus, Rajoelina said. The Indian Ocean island on July 5 placed its capital Antananarivo under a fresh lockdown following a new surge in infections, two months after the restrictions were eased. It has recorded 2,573 infections including 35 deaths with the government estimating that the peak will not be reached until the end of August.
