Nairobi - Without being shocking, the statistics on the spread of Covid-19 in Africa are disturbing on Tuesday: more than 8,000 new cases and 300 deaths, according to the continent's Center for Disease Prevention (CPE).
The entity's report states that the total number of infections reached 1,255,153 and deaths rose to 29,815 in Africa, after reporting 8,211 new cases and 470 deaths in the last 24 hours. These figures increased following a substantial decline on Sunday.
Since the disease emerged in the continent, specialized sources, starting with the World Health Organization and CPE, as well as epidemiology specialists from several continents, have warned that an uncontrolled progress of the disease would cause a catastrophe.
Fortunately, the forecasts have not been confirmed, but the disease, although at a slow pace, is progressing on the continent, which appears penultimate in the official list of worst-hit areas and countries by the disease, caused by SARS-CoV-2.
Since the pandemic emerged, about 851,321 people have died across the planet of a total of 25,533,540 cases. Some 17,635,900 patients were recovered from the disease.
