Africa’s coronavirus cases surpass 200,000

Pretoria, June 11 (RHC)-- Coronvirus cases in Africa topped 200,000, according to the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  The 54-nation continent has 202,782 cases and 5,516 deaths.

While Africa still represents a tiny percentage of the world’s total COVID-19 cases, well under 5 percent, officials in South Africa and elsewhere have expressed concern as the number of infections continues to climb.

South Africa leads the continent with 52,991 cases, with almost two-thirds of them in the Western Cape province centered on the city of Cape Town.
