As the EU enters the "hammer and dance" stage and opens up travel, global spillovers will be with us until vaccines are widely available. So systematically adding support to developing countries (and our neighbors in Africa in particular) should be a priority for the #EU. 4/4

Across #Africa government responses differ widely. Quality of government seems to matter a lot (like in richer countries). Lacking financial reserves, most households in Africa cannot sustain lockdowns and countries have to open up early. A humanitarian catastrophe looms. 3/4

... we see that in several parts of the continent, the number of confirmed cases is growing very fast. Far from already bending the curve at low levels (Taiwan) or high levels (Germany), daily increases are worrying. The countries may be at earlier stages of the outbreak. 2/4 t.co/yG9ErKiX7S
