Friday, 12. June, 06.02 PM: Africa has, according to the world health organization (WHO), more than 200,000 proven Corona cases recorded. In addition, more than 5600 people have died, said the WHO on Thursday. Accordingly, South Africa is affected with 25 percent of the cases, the strongest. More than 70 percent of deaths in just five countries: Algeria, Egypt, Nigeria, South Africa and Sudan.
The Coronavirus Sars-CoV-2 has widespread yet relatively slowly on the continent, the total number is still low compared to other regions. The first case occurred in Africa later than elsewhere, and most governments have swiftly imposed strict measures. “But the speed of propagation is always faster,” warned the WHO Africa Chief Matshidiso Moeti. Accordingly, it has taken 98 days, up to 100,000 people were infected, but only 18 more days until the 200,000 mark.
Since the health systems in many African countries is very weak, the concern is large, as the countries with an increase in Sars-CoV-2 infections bypass. On the other hand, the strict Lockdown have economies measures have a devastating impact on people and the people. To keep the Balance, is probably the greatest challenge for many States.
