World Health Organisation WHO says South Africa can flatten the curve


South Africa can flatten the curve, without extending the nationwide lockdown.

This is according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Spokesperson, Dr Margaret Harris, says people must, however, maintain social distancing, keep hands clean and identify cases quickly.

“Africa has an advantage and understands the importance of surveillance. While the rest of the world was taken by surprise, My feeling is Africa is better placed in many ways”.

“It is still relatively early, There is still time to flatten to curve”.

Harris believes Africa is likely to deal with COVID-19 much better than the rest of the world.
