Africa registers 32% increase in new COVID-19 cases amid global decrease

While global COVID-19 cases have been on a decrease, Africa has had a 32 per cent increase in cases in the past one week, according to a latest epidemiological report by the World Health Organization (WHO)

With Omicron remaining the most dominant variant circulating, four countries in Africa reported an increase of over 20 per cent in cases, with some of the greatest proportional increases observed in Burundi, South Africa and Eswatini

WHO also reports that globally the number of new COVID-19 cases and deaths has continued to decline since the end of March 2022. During the week of 18th through 24th April 2022, over 4.5 million cases and over 15 000 deaths were reported accounting for decreases of 21 per cent and 20 per cent respectively as compared to the previous week

Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO director general says recent figures are causing many countries to relax with some progressively changing their COVID-19 testing
