ERITREA SAYS all its Covid-19 patients have recovered; Got spokesperson Yemane Meskel says there has been no new case since April 18.

Eritrea may well be on the path to eliminate Covid-19 on its soil, after 38 of the 39 reported cases recovered and were discharged from hospital.

The country’s Health Ministry says it now has only one active case of Covid-19 following what officials say is strict guideline for people to stay home.

The country has not reported a single case of the novel coronavirus disease since April 18 when four people who had been quarantined contracted the virus.

This comes in in the wake of World Health Organization which warned that  coronavirus could kill 150,000 people in Africa in a year unless urgent action is taken, according to a WHO modelling study that says nearly a quarter of a billion people will be infected.

Authors of the research, published Friday in the journal BMJ Global Health, predicted a lower infection rate than in other parts of the world like Europe and the US, with fewer severe cases and deaths.

Despite the level of recovery in Eritrea, the government in Asmara has stressed that the latest achievement should not, however, convey a wrong picture and prompt the public to loosen regulations enforced by country’s task force.
