Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statistics

Last updated: October 01, 2021, 16:08 GMT
























As researchers still battle to find a vaccine, and the absence of pre-existing immunity due to the novelty of the virus, there are several reasons to foresee devastating consequences of large outbreaks of COVID-19 in Africa’s routine health care activities. Possible reasons for these expected devastating...

The NW/SW regions have unfortunately become the theatre of such a ravaging disaster since four years ago triggered by accumulated layers of grievances meted on the consciousness of the Anglophone population in these regions of the country in tandem with marginalization particularly in the educational and legal systems by...

Projections of the impacts of COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy in general and Africa in particular are indeed dismal. Whilst the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) estimates a global economic recession by 0.5 for 2020

Le Covid-2019 est de nature  médicale et psychosociale. Tandis que les médecins traitent les symptômes des différents malades pour chercher à  rétablir l’équilibre physique et physiologique de l’organisme,

Dans le contexte de la défense nationale, le Covid-19 implique des actions sanitaires et de protection civile contre le risque majeur avéré et ses incidences sur les secteurs de l’économie nationale: le blocage temporaire des activités de production va entrainer la récession économique dans plusieurs Etats.

The economic impact of COVID-19 will be broad-based, causing wages to fall due to social distancing and quarantine measures on the service sector. While communications and ICT-related sectors will be less...

In Cameroon it is not a common practice nor is it a cultural stereotype for people to wear and carry on face masks, except by certain strata of Muslim religious leaders, who wear the turban. This partly explains why some people have not been able to use the mask or some people wear the mask and cover only their chins, while the original objective for putting on a mask is to cover the nose and mouth.

La maladie est un concept subjectif qui varie en fonction de la culture d’appartenance. Les rapports étroits entre la culture, la maladie et les représentations sociales sont probants et ont été étudiés par maints chercheurs en anthropologie médicale. Il est alors important de s’interroger sur les représentations du Covid 19 chez les Camerounais soumis à l’influence de leur culture.

le Cameroun a temporairement fermé depuis le 18 mars 2020 sur l’étendue de son territoire[5], les établissements d’enseignement primaire, secondaire et universitaire afin de contenir la propagation de la pandémie Covid-19.

La pandémie actuelle affecte nos vies et nos économies interdépendantes de multiples façons. Le secteur minier n’est pas exempt et en ressentira les effets différemment selon les matières, les minerais et modes d’exploitation.

nous démontrons comment la pandémie du COVID-19 impacte le secteur des marchés publics au Cameroun, en dérogeant s’agissant des marchés liés au COVID-19, aux règles de passation édictées par le code des marchés publics.

Le ralentissement de l’activité économique (baisse des exportations et des importations) pourrait aussi conduire à des licenciements dans le secteur formel ou alors à la mise au chômage temporaire/partiel de certains staffs. Cette situation pourrait pousser les personnes concernées à migrer dans le secteur informel pour pallier au chômage et poursuivre des opportunités de revenus de subsistance.

The usefulness of cloth face masks to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, however, has been subject to a lot of debate. The scientific community is torn between outright restriction of use because of a lack of evidence supporting protective ability and the ethical dilemma of appearing to prefer a ‘no face masks’ policy

The soaring number of COVID-19 cases are rapidly approaching the 1000th mark and has spread to six of Cameroon’s ten regions. Hence, the need for urgent actions to eradicate the virus from the national territory is imminent. The government needs to take stringent measures to drastically curb the spread of the virus while containing the current cases.

Oil prices have plummeted as the Coronavirus has intensified across much of Europe and North America. The Energy Information Agency (EIA) has revised down its global oil demand forecast, which suggests that major importers such as China as well as European countries will reduce demand for oil.

The first case of COVID-19 was confirmed on March 6, 2020 and since then case detection has known an exponential increase. As of March 31, cases had risen to 223, distributed between 4 regions namely, the Center, Littoral, West and South West Regions.
