Coronavirus: Africa records cases in 19 countries #COVID19 #coronavirus #Africa #pandemic #quarantine #emergency

Coronavirus Alert_2

Covid-19 has now taken a foothold in 19 countries in Africa, a continent authorities are particularly worried about due to a lack of health services.

Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Guinea and Mauritania all confirmed their first cases of the coronavirus on Friday.

Most of Africa’s reported cases were foreigners or people who had travelled abroad.

Cases were previously reported in Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Algeria, Senegal, Togo, Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Africa, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Ghana, Guinea, Sudan, Kenya and Ethiopia.

The numbers of cases in most of the countries are still in single figures.

Mauritania’s health ministry says its first coronavirus patient is a European man, whose nationality was not specified, had returned to Nouakchott on 9 March and had since been in quarantine.

Senegal confirmed 11 new cases, raising the total in that West African nation to 21. Its health ministry said 16 had been infected by the same man who had returned from Italy.

Kenya’s health minister, Mutahi Kagwe, said the country’s first case, a 27-year-old Kenyan, was diagnosed on Thursday after travelling home via London on 5 March.

Breaking News

The UK and Ireland are to be added to America’s European travel ban over the coronavirus pandemic, Donald Trump has confirmed.

The new restrictions are expected to begin on Monday night.

It is thought that American citizens, green card holders and others will still be allowed to return home to the US.

However, they will be sent to 13 selected airports and be subjected to health screenings and quarantine orders, the AP news agency reported.

There have been 50 deaths in the US, Mr Trump said in a news conference at the White House.

He told reporters he had his temperature taken before entering the room, and it was “totally normal”.

The president also revealed he had been tested for COVID-19, but has not yet received the result.
