BARGNY, Senegal (AP) — Since her birth on Senegal’s coast, the ocean has always given Ndeye Yacine Dieng life. Her grandfather was a fisherman, and her grandmother and mother processed fish. Like generations of women, she now helps support her family in the small community of Bargny by drying, smoking, salting and fermenting the catch brought home by male villagers. They were baptized by fish, these women say.
The White House Covid-19 response coordinator on Sunday said the country is "turning the corner" on the pandemic, but stressed that despite some Covid fatigue, Americans must get vaccinated and follow the science.
