      WHO: Africa could be next coronavirus epicentre

      Africa could become the next epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak, the World Health Organisation (WHO) warned citing data that there was a sharp rise in cases in the past week. So far there are about 19,000 reported cases and up to 1,000 deaths across Africa, says the virus appears to be spreading away from capitals to the countryside. The WHO warns that the continent does not have enough ventilators to deal with a pandemic.
