In 2019, the economic prospects for most African countries looked better. Then, in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic happened, causing lockdowns and restrictive measures that precipitated the social-economic crisis that could haunt African countries for decades. Consequently, food insecurity, loss of income and livelihoods, medical tools, and medicines shortages plague the continent causing more pain and suffering than the virus itself. Experts state that the lockdowns and the global recession from COVID-19 have forced more Africans into poverty and uncertainty. This webinar will analyze the impact of COVID-19 on African countries and discuss some recommendations that could change the negative trajectory.
