Africa next epicentre of the coronavirus pandemic?

The Brussels Times (06/21/2020)
  • After a slow beginning to the coronavirus pandemic in Africa, cases are increasing rapidly.
  • The earnings of informal workers have decreased drastically, and the rate of poverty is increasing.
  • Countries handling other crises are more terribly impacted socially and economically, but countries in better conditions that are acting to reduce transmission are declining less.
  • The UN and donor countries are supporting African governments.
  • The pandemic risks reversing the development of Africa, so the government must focus its economy on individuals and smaller businesses.
