Covid-19 spreading to Africa’s rural areas

World Health Director Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said theCOVID-19 is spreading to rural areas of Africa, although the numbers are small.

With clusters of cases and community spread now appearing in more than 16 countries, he expects “severe hardship” for local health systems, which are already overstretched.

“The recent meeting of the G20 countries expressed strong support for Africa, which must be expedited even though the numbers in Africa are still relatively small but accelerating’, Dr. Ghebreyesus said.
