The Covid-19 infection updates on the COVID HQ Africa site are updated daily based on the latest information received by the WHO. It is important for users to note that there is a time lag between data arriving from individual African countries to the WHO and consequently how the data will be availed and/or communicated to users. Further to the foregoing, that the tallies from countries may have undercounted deaths that have occurred as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic during this period due to limited testing facilities.

The personal information provided, including your name, e-mail address, phone number will be kept confidential and be used to notify you of information that we think may be of interest to you.
