  1. Background

March 2021 marks 1 year since the 1st case of corona virus was reported in Cameroon. One year from recording the first case of the virus, the global economy is yet to recover from the shock of the global health crisis that has affected every sector. Unfortunately presently speaking, Cameroon and the rest of the world are still in the quest for a definite solution to the pandemic. It might be pessimistic to say COVID-19 has come to stay but until a definite solution is found, we are yet to be free from the Virus. The socio-economic impact of the pandemic on the global economy has been huge. However, the response strategy of some countries and how they have been limiting its spread is “a light at the end of the tunnel” for others.
