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.

Experts have worried about COVID-19 spreading to Africa, because many of the healthcare systems on the continent are inadequate, having problems such as lack of equipment, lack of funding, insufficient training of healthcare workers, and inefficient data transmission. It was feared that the pandemic could be difficult to keep under control in Africa, and could cause huge economic problems if it spread widely.

Matshidiso Moeti of the World Health Organization said that hand washing and physical distancing could be challenging in some places in Africa. Lockdowns may not be possible, and challenges may be exacerbated by the prevalence of diseases such as malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, and cholera.

The World Health Organization helped many countries on the continent set up laboratories for COVID-19 testing. Many preventive measures have been implemented in different countries in Africa, including travel restrictions, flight cancellations, event cancellations, school closures, and border closures. Experts say that experience battling Ebola helped some countries prepare for COVID-19.
