Three more African countries registered their first coronavirus cases

Three more African countries registered their first coronavirus cases over the weekend bringing the total number of affected countries to 42 with 1,187 cases according to data provided by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Angola, Eritrea and Uganda confirmed initial cases while Mauritius recorded its first death as the virus spreads across Africa despite proactive responses taken by governments to close their borders to heavily-affected areas.

Despite much of the world adopting this measure, the WHO has warned that it is unlikely to stop the transmission of the virus.

Many now fear that Africa is merely a number of weeks behind other places like Italy and the US which have seen huge increases since initally reporting a few cases.
