The World Health Organization has been warned that the African continent could be the next epicentre of coronavirus outbreak. It has been suspected that this pandemic is going to kill more than 300,000 people. Not only that, but this outbreak is also going to push 30 million civilians into poverty.
It has been reported that there are more than 1,000 death and 19,000 confirmed case from Africa. The infection is spreading out from the African capital. It has been also highlighted that the entire continent didn’t have enough ventilators to deal with a pandemic as well.
Moreover, the entire continent lacks access to adequate water supplies. More than 60% of urban dwellers’ home located in slums. There are high chances that the virus could spread over these places easily.
