“Fighting Coronavirus In Africa Needs Total Solidarity” – WHO


The World Health Organisation (WHO) says fighting COVID-19 in Africa needs total solidarity.

The WHO Regional Office for Africa in Brazzaville, Congo said this on its official twitter account @WHOAFRO on Monday.

“That’s why the polio programme is lending its tools of personal computer, workforce and surveillance network right-pointing magnifying glass to help African countries respond.’’

According the agency, the polio workers have been fighting COVID-19 by educating communities on prevention, coordinating outbreak response, investigating cases, training health workers and tracing contacts.

WHO had on April 10 confirmed a fresh case of Ebola virus in the city of Beni in DRC, after 52 days of not recording a case in the country.
