What you need to know:

  • Africa seems to have escaped the full wrath of Covid-19 in the first wave and it isn’t clear why.
  • But there have been some indirect consequences of the pandemic such as the fact that many children have missed out on vaccination.
  • On a positive note, the experiences of 2020 can teach the continent to be more prepared for similar attacks in the future.

When and if Africa ever comes to terms with Covid-19, whether such reckoning means the disease has been defeated or weakened but remaining low key, it will still take many years to recover from the consequences of the continent’s war against this disease.
