Pandemic

The pandemic should not take our freedoms too.

As at the time of writing this, there are 22,333 confirmed coronavirus cases in Africa and 1,125 coronavirus deaths.

When compared to cases in other countries, these figures show that the health crisis does not so severely hit Africa nations, yet, the implications on its economy are grave and catastrophic. 

For the first time in 25 years, sub-Saharan Africa is about to go into recession, according to World Bank estimates. Following 2.4 percent growth last year, the forecast for 2020 is between -2.1 and -5.1 percent as the economy contracts.
