THE coron­avirus pan­demic in Africa is reach­ing “full speed” and it is pre­par­ing for the worst-case sce­nario, the Africa Cen­tres for Dis­ease Con­trol (CDC) and Preven­tion has said.

A South African of­fi­cial said a sin­gle prov­ince is pre­par­ing 1.5 mil­lion graves. The num­ber of con­firmed virus cases across Africa sur­passed the half-mil­lion mile­stone on Wed­nes­day, with more than 12,000 deaths. With test­ing lev­els low, the real numbers are un­known.
