Coronavirus in the different African countries
Spread the love

Coronavirus has taken root in Africa slowly but the number of cases is now increasing. The analysis of the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic in Africa continues. The response will have to be adapted to the African background, with demographics somewhat different on the continent from China, Europe and the United States. Africa has the youngest population in the world and it seems that older people are more vulnerable to COVID-19. Preliminary research indicates, however, that people with underlying disabilities are at higher risk. Almost 26 million people living with HIV in the world. More than 58 million children have been affected by malnutrition. Younger people could also be more at risk in Africa than elsewhere in the world.  WHO has provided early detection assistance to governments by supplying COVID-19 testing kits to African countries, training laboratory technicians, and enhancement of community surveillance.
