I have rated the COVID-19 pandemic as second world shaker in the sense that the whole world has gone under war which has firstly disturbed some countries’ development and economic growth.
When we look at the European and Asian Countries economic status comparing to African economic status there is a very huge different, Africa will never be equal to European and Asian countries, when the world economy falls, Africa will be highly effected than the European and Asian Continents.
What happens to Africa when they heard about COVID-19, they started to the lockdown game due to all kinds of panicking and other related myths that we can not challenge or stop the spread of the pandemic, following that the European and Asian countries could not stop it also. The worst part of Africa in response to pandemic was that they did not first look at the side effect of lockdown to economical status and employments, am not saying keep the job and let the pandemic to destroy your nation but am asking for African to venture out and find out some creative ways of dealing with the situation. Most of the African country’s cases are travel-related not internal infections.
What is more important being praised by the world because you have few numbers of COVID-19 cases just because you have sacrifice the living of your people and business, what pays you by having 70% of your people have lost their job just because the measure you have taken to fight the pandemic are not well assessed to cater for all challenges.
