The coronavirus pandemic has indeed shook the world to its very core as whole countries have been shut down and religious as well as social gatherings have been suspended.
The coronavirus, otherwise known as COVID-19, reportedly started in Wuhan, China, but it has now spread to all but one continent in the world with the death rate in some countries even being higher than where the virus originated from.
A lot of Africans were initially feeling invisible to the virus because it took a while for cases to be reported. However, things have gone south quickly with some countries already recording hundreds of cases.
