Covid-19: Africa records 1.1mln recoveries out of 1.3mln cases so far (Africa CDC)

(Ecofin Agency) - In Africa, the number of people who have recovered from coronavirus continues to grow. According to the latest assessment by the African Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1.1 million people have already recovered from the disease, out of 1.3 million cases recorded so far. The continent has recorded 32,809 deaths.

The southern part of Africa is the most affected by the pandemic with 705,516 cases for 618,673 recoveries and 16,647 deaths. The least affected region is Central Africa with 56,489 cases for 48,908 recoveries and 1,065 deaths.

This announcement comes in the context of the global resurgence of the pandemic which has prompted WHO in recent days to ask countries to redouble their vigilance. Since December 2019, covid-19 has affected 29.6 million people worldwide and caused at least 936,000 deaths. Africa remains the least affected continent. The United States has about six times more Covid-19 deaths (196,000) than Africa as a whole.
Under its “Africa against Covid-19: Saving lives, economies and livelihoods” campaign, the African Union (AU) plans to conduct 20 million covid-19 tests by November 2020.

Let’s note that South Africa is the African country most affected by the pandemic. It has 650,749 cases for 15,499 deaths and 579,289 recoveries, according to the latest assessment of Africa CDC.
