The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that 47 (almost 90%) of the 54 African countries will not be able to achieve the goal of “vaccinating 10% of their population by September”.
“Vaccines have been proven to prevent cases and prevent deaths, which is why countries that can urgently share the Covid-19 vaccine. Africa is in dire need of this dose sharing,” said Dr. Matshidiso Moyeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa.
According to the World Health Organization, the epidemic is particularly prevalent in 10 African countries, including four, where there has been a 30% improvement in the last seven days compared to the previous week.
72% of new cases are reported in Egypt, South Africa, Tunisia, Uganda and Zambia, and more than half of these new cases are reported in nine South African countries.
According to the African Union Health Agency (CDC), 4,969,847 Govt-19 cases were reported on the African continent on Thursday, with 133,543 people dying from the disease.
