Africa’s Covid-19 cases surpass 3.3m – WHO

The World Health Organisation,(WHO), Regional Office for Africa in Brazzaville, Congo, has said that there are over 3.3 million confirmed Covid-19 cases on the African continent.

The UN health agency gave the update on its regional official Twitter handle, yesterday.

It stated on its dashboard that there were over 3.3 million confirmed COVID-19 cases on the African continent, with more than 2.8 million recoveries and 82,000 deaths cumulatively.

Meanwhile, in a statement posted on its website, the UN health agency said Africa needed timely access to safe and effective Covid-19 vaccines to combat the virus.

It stated that while the development and approval of safe and effective vaccines less than a year after the emergence of Covid-19 is a stunning achievement, Africa is lagging behind.
