Virus spreads across Africa
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.
