In the World’s Coronavirus Blind Spot, Fears of a Silent Epidemic

The worldwide scramble to thwart the coronavirus has a vast blind spot: sub-Saharan Africa.

In Tanzania, the federal government outlawed coronavirus testing and declared its nationwide outbreak defeated, even as hundreds of persons died month to month from unexplained respiratory complications. Last thirty day period in Zambia, 28 persons died at house in a one day with Covid-19-like signs and symptoms while ready to be examined. In South Sudan, federal government forces barricaded hundreds of persons within refugee camps, claiming they have been infected but refusing to perform checks.
