COVID-19 in West Africa

There are 14 confirmed cases in Liberia at the moment, 3 deaths.  Cameroon has many more – 658 cases and 9 reported deaths on 6th April.  Grace recently sent a picture of 2 midwives in full PPE having just delivered a premature baby of a young woman with COVID-19.  Cameroon, at least the francophone part, will be better equipped to deal with this than Liberia but we are certainly all willing the hot weather to slow the spread of this virus in parts of the world that simply don’t have the equipment to support the lives of people with respiratory failure.  https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20200323-coronavirus-will-hot-weather-kill-covid-19 is an interesting article looking at the evidence for and against the theory that weather might matter.
