Covid-19 Africa Stats

Africa statistics

As Europe and North American countries go into self-imposed economic and social lockdown to curb the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Africa remains the continent least affected by the virus. But there’s no room for complacency. “Africa should wake up, my continent should wake up,” World Health Organisation chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said on March 19th, 2020.

The 2020 coronavirus pandemic was confirmed to have spread to Africa on 14 February 2020. The first confirmed case on the continent was in Egypt, and the first confirmed case in sub-Saharan Africa was in Nigeria. Most of the identified cases have arrived from Europe and the United States rather than from China.
