Recommendations for Stepwise response to COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly expanding in Africa. To help countries respond, Africa CDC is recommending that African Union Member States tailor their response activities to the stage of their epidemic and to the African context. African countries have a greater vulnerability to massive economic, social and political disruption from many outbreak control measures being implemented in Asia, Europe and North America.
This document provides a high-level mapping of outbreak stages with guidance on how to time the minimum uptake of different interventions that have been recommended by Africa CDC, driven by evidence and science.
