COVID 19 Deaths in Africa

Our thoughts and prayers are with the countries who are currently facing the heat of the COVID19 battle. With globally deaths approaching 75 000, Africa has currently only recorded 0,6% of those. As of the 7th of April, ±480 deaths have been recorded in Africa. North Africa accounts for 75% and the country of South Africa, 2%. But index cases in South Africa and other African countries lagged, by a few weeks, those in North Africa so the full impact in Africa still has to be seen and we have precious time to further prepare.
