The ability to innovate and quickly adapt will be major issues framing the world's developmental trajectory after the Covid-19 outbreak, writes Lovemore Chikova for The Herald. This comes as African innovations created to negate the impact of the pandemic include a solar-powered handwashing machine from Ghana and an electric soap dispenser with a built-in sensor from Ethiopia.

The work of scientists across Africa to conduct clinical trial reviews and combat Covid-19 gets little attention.
