Sharing is Caring

WHO has warned that Covid-19 could kill up to 190,000 people in Africa in the first year if control measures put in place fail to work.

The numbers would overpower the available medical capacity in much of Africa, WHO warns citing a new study.

WHO Africa Regional Director Matshidiso Moeti said the transmission of Covid-19 has been slower but could result in a longer outbreak.

‘’While coronavirus likely won’t spread as exponentially in Africa as elsewhere in the world, it is likely to smoulder in transmission hot spots,’’ Dr. Moeti said.

Who proposes that efforts be directed towards strengthening healthcare systems in the African continent.

‘’Covid-19 could become a fixture in our lives for the next several years unless a proactive approach is taken by many governments in the region. We need to test, trace, isolate and treat,’’ Said Dr. Moeti.
