Africa Innovates to Combat COVID-19

Innovation, which has long characterized Africa, has become a central feature of the response to the SARS-CoV-2 (new coronavirus) crisis across the continent. Fashion designers in many countries are joining the mask-making effort. Entrepreneurs are working to produce much-needed ventilators and other personal protection equipment. Mobile apps are being launched to provide COVID-19 test kits and up-to-date information and offer food delivery during lockdowns.
