The World Health Organization Regional Office for Africa (WHOAFRO) has revealed that there are now more than over 60,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 across the African continent.
According to the agency’s latest data, the breakdown remains fluid as countries confirm cases as and when. Also a number of African countries are imposing a range of prevention and containment measures against the spread of the pandemic.
Lesotho is the country holding out as of May 11 while South Africa has the most with more than 9,400 registered.
The widespread shortage of testing capacity continues to be a challenge and means the true figures are likely to be much higher.
Some countries are easing lockdowns even as cases rise, arguing people have to make a living and feed their families despite the risks.
