ABSTRACT

The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted lives across the globe in just a few months. And yet, there are no effective vaccine or treatment to contain its spread. A very likely scenario for African countries is a continued battle with the disease over the next year at least, with steady spread of infections to larger parts of countries, including into more remote areas. While we are dealing with the immediate and multifaceted effects, we need to also look ahead to bolster preparedness to tackle the crisis in likely future hot spots.
