 The  researchers suspect that the extent of the corona pandemic is significantly underestimated not only in Zambia, but also in other African countries.

In large parts of Africa little has been tested so far, so the true extent of the corona pandemic on the continent is unclear.  In the picture: The grave is disinfected before the burial of a Covid corpse in a Nairobi cemetery.

Africa is still a big corona puzzle: the virus seems to have almost flown over the continent on its way from Asia to Europe and America. Only in South Africa has there been an intense infection rate with over 20,000 dead, more than 750,000 infected and now even a new virus variant against which the previously approved vaccines are only effective to a limited extent. According to a research team from Zambia and Boston led by Lawrence Mwanayanda, the solution to the riddle could be as simple as it is alarming: © www.de24.news

 The  Sars-CoV-2 spread is being overlooked in large parts of Africa because there is little and incomplete testing.
