Covid-19: Africa steps up to prevent carnage
When Egypt announced at the beginning of February that it had recorded the first case of coronavirus in Africa, the whole world held its breath, as Africa is known for its inadequate health system. The virus, which entered through North Africa, has found its way to sub-Saharan Africa. Today, bit by bit, most African countries have confirmed cases and the Dark Continent, like the others, is engaged in the response against Covid-19. However, the greatest fears remain linked to the rapid spread of this epidemic in Africa, which has already caused more than 60,000 deaths worldwide and above all to the continent's health and financial capacities in the management of patients. While the speeches made by international bodies including the United Nations and the World Health Organization (WHO) are marked by pessimism, the population in Africa, in a burst of pride, claims to have experienced worse situations than the coronavirus in the past.
