“It Took Africa 98 Days To Reach 100,000 Cases Of Covid19 And Just 18 Days To Reach 200,000” – WHO Reports.


The World Health Organisation has warned that Covid19 cases in Africa is accelerating as it took 98 days for the continent to reach a 100,00 positive cases and just 18 days to double the figure.

“Even though these cases in Africa account for less than 3 percent of the global total, it’s clear that the pandemic is accelerating,” WHO Africa head Matshidiso Moeti told a media briefing.

Moeti said community transmission had begun in more than half of Africa’s 54 countries, calling that “a serious sign”.

More than 5,500 coronavirus-related deaths have been confirmed so far across the continent.
