As the COVID-19 Pandemic enters its fourth month, countries, communities and organizations are hard pressed to transform their modes of operation to respond to its rapid spread that has seen 30,367 confirmed cases recorded in Africa with 1378 deaths reported to date1. Similarly, different sectors of life ranging from social, economic and cultural aspects have been either severely affected or completely transformed.
During this period of uncertainty, we urge our stakeholders and partners to adhere to the communicated government directives and those of the World Health Organization. Covid-19 is a reality that needs concerted effort to overcome. The uncertainty it brings cannot be taken lightly. We thank the various governments for taking action for humanity. Stringent and restrictive as some of the measures may be, they will help reduce social, cultural and economic disruptions.
