Apart from certain countries such as South Africa, Africa has relatively low per-capita Covid-19 infection rates compared with other parts of the world. But the economic and health challenges are significant because of the continent’s relatively less developed economies and infrastructure. 

As the pandemic continues to ravage the world, what policy responses should African governments take to secure livelihoods and economic recovery while containing the virus? Besides debt relief from the World Bank and other multilateral institutions, what else could be done to provide the fiscal space to help African countries survive and thrive in the post-pandemic world? How do geopolitics, particularly the US-China strategic competition, affect Africa’s fight against the pandemic?

Join AsiaGlobal Fellows Charity Amayaenvbo (Nigeria), George Lwanda (South Africa), Clayton Hazvinei Vhumbunu (Zimbabwe) and Kadidia Konare (Mali) as they offer on-the-ground insights on Africa’s Covid-19 responses.

All are welcome.
