Covid-19 In Africa Stats

Experts have worried about COVID-19 spreading to Africa, because many of the healthcare systems on the continent are inadequate, having problems such as lack of equipment, lack of funding, insufficient training of healthcare workers, and inefficient data transmission.

It was feared that the pandemic could be difficult to keep under control in Africa, and could cause huge economic problems if it spread widely. Matshidiso Moeti of the World Health Organization said that hand washing and physical distancing could be challenging in some places in Africa.

Lockdowns may not be possible, and challenges may be exacerbated by the prevalence of diseases such as malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, and cholera. The World Health Organization helped many countries on the continent set up laboratories for COVID-19 testing. Many preventive measures have been implemented in different countries in Africa, including travel restrictions, flight cancellations, event cancellations, school closures, and border closures. Experts say that experience battling Ebola helped some countries prepare for COVID-19.
