COVID-19 continues to spread with a linear daily increment as most of the countries in East, Southern and West Africa relax their confinement measures (schools and markets are reopening, public gatherings are resuming). World Vision is concerned by the increasing risk of a wider transmission and appeals for the intensification of prevention measures and support to health systems for mass testing and surveillance. We continue to respond to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis through a multi-sectoral approach; working in collaboration with local authorities, frontline health workers, academic institutions, faith leaders and communities, and local NGOs.
We are currently reaching a total of 22,892,796 people* including 9,536,910 children with our ongoing COVID-19 response interventions covering 26 countries across the African continent. Find the latest updates in our 10th Africa Regional COVID-19 Situation Report.
