Africa Hurtles Toward One Million Cases

Jul 20, 2020

Africa’s coronavirus case load crossed 700,000 infections, on Monday. More than half of the cases have been recorded in South Africa.

According to Africa News, on Friday, the WHO reported a 27% increase in the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 on the continent. The organization’s Africa situation report indicated that just 10 countries on the continent account for 88% of all reported coronavirus infections in the African Region. These include: South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Algeria, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya, Senegal, Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

WHO Regional Director for Africa, Matshidiso Moeti said that sub-Saharan Africa hosts more than 26% of the world’s refugees. There are also 19 million internally displaced people on the continent. She encouraged all countries do more to help these vulnerable populations during the COVID-19 crisis.

The true number of cases in Africa is, however, unknown. Africa News reports that there is a serious shortage of testing materials. Most testing has been concentrated in cities, while infections have spread beyond them.
