The International Monetary Fund said that Africa needs $ 1.2 trillion over the next three years, to recover from the economic and health costs resulting from the spread of the Corona virus.

The fund’s director, Kristalina Georgieva, said the world “must do more to support Africa (to recover) … from this crisis.”

This comes despite the fact that the number of HIV cases and deaths due to it is lower in Africa than most other continents.

But the World Bank warns that 43 million more Africans face the risk of falling into extreme poverty as a result of the epidemic.
