WHO calls on African nations to exercise caution amid surge in COVID-19 cases

Despite recording a downward trend in its COVID-19 curve during the last 90 days, the World Health Organisation (W.H.O.) called on African countries to practice caution amid surge in the rising number of Coronavirus cases.

The African continent is witnessing contrasting statistics in different parts as some of the nations have reported declining tallies while others continue to report resurgence in the numbers of infection cases. In the entire continent, only three nations have reported more than 100,000 cases.

Pointing out the development, even as the world was witnessing a resurgence in the number of new infections in Europe, W.H.O. Regional Director for Africa Dr. Matshidiso Moeti warned that the decline in the COVID-19 cases had plateaued and it was a “pivotal moment” for the continent.

Adding further Moeti said, “So, the continent is at a key juncture where countries could experience, an increase in cases. Sometimes called a new wave of increases.”
