A United Nations Agency has forecasted that the African continent might suffer as much as 3 million deaths from the novel Coronavirus.
According to the UN Agency if you add that factor to relatively low supplies of hospital beds and the fact that 71% of the continent’s workforce is “informally employed, then a full blown disaster is heading Africa’s way..
The report, which was launched on Friday was titled: “COVID-19: Protecting African Lives and Economies” and the report had chilling details that paint a grim picture of what the future could hold for the African continent.
The UN commission referred to a computer model composed by researchers at Imperial College London. According to the model, under the worst-case scenario with no interventions against the virus, Africa could see 3.3 million deaths and 1.2 billion infections.
Under the best-case scenario which will involve “intense social distancing.” the continent could see more than 122 million infections, the report said. According to the agency, if intense social distancing is carried out, there will be halting of large sectors of the economy that’llpush as many as 29 million people into extreme poverty.
