LIVE - Kovid-19: Intensive care patients drop below 5,000

Africa

The spread of Coronavirus records in India worries African countries, which, apart from the arrival of the Indian version on the continent, fear that it will permanently limit the supply of vaccines, hitherto largely provided by the Asian giant has gone. With more than 4.5 million cases and more than 123,000 officially recorded deaths on continents, Africa has so far been relatively spared from the epidemic.

WHO Director General Tedros Adnom Ghebius warned on Saturday, “But whatever is happening in other parts of the world can happen in Africa.” “In many countries, premature exemptions of social and public health measures combined with unequal distribution of vaccines have tragic consequences,” he said.

However, for several months, the epidemic has followed “surprisingly similar” developments on the African continent and in India, noted John Nkengsong as director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Africa. Apart from an equal number of inhabitants, India and Africa share common points of backward cities and fragile health structures.
