CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC: A Brief Analysis of Three African Countries
Over the past few months, the world has seen the phenomenon of COVID-19 outbreak. Countries have implemented a lockdown with the view to slow or halt the spread of coronavirus. Human movement has been restricted, the pandemic has disconcerted millions of lives, companies across the globe have been shut down, hospitals have been overwhelmed with high number of patients and death rates. Scientists around the World have been working tirelessly to find a solution to the pandemic. World leaders are confronted with the challenges, control and management of the disease has been a confusion to the leaders as they keep rattling with what to be done to put an end to the crisis.
However, the proliferation of COVID-19 in Africa will endanger millions of lives if the leaders do not wake up to the challenges. Most African countries lack the resources and infrastructure to sustain the lives of the citizens and to combat the disease. Since the start of COVID-19 pandemic, most of the developed nations have supported their citizens in many areas, ranging from giving loans to businesses and providing financial assistance to their citizens. In Africa, where there are limited resources available to the citizens, overcoming this problem is questionable.
This report tends to assimilate the responses provided by three leading African countries - Nigeria, South Africa and Egypt. The report briefly analyses what the leaders have put in place to support the population since the lockdown.
