Written by on March 26, 2020

African states have been stepping up efforts to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Infection rates on the 54-nation continent are still low – 2,700 cases in 46 states.

There are fears that the number will rise rapidly because of cross-infections, overwhelming health services on the mainly poor continent.

In the latest developments, Uganda has banned all public transport with immediate effect, creating fear and panic in the capital, Kampala. The security forces have shutting down businesses in the capital and Kampala’s streets are now mainly deserted.

The president said it was coming into effect immediately to stop the spread of coronavirus.

In Kenya, East Africa’s biggest economy, President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced a night-time curfew from Friday

Kenya’s president has also taken an 80% pay cut, as he prepares the nation for tough economic times – and has urged other officials to follow suit

Meanwhile, Germany says it will not be paying for six million face masks it had ordered but had not received after they went missing at an airport in Kenya.
