WHO Notes Improved Covid-19 Response in West Africa

In Benin, the World Health Organisation (WHO) welcomed the nation's expansion of laboratory facilities for testing Covid-19, allowing it to perform 10,000 tests per day. Similarly, Senegal has increased attempts to bolster Covid-19 testing by delivering results within 24 hours and by automating the process at every stage, where possible. Meanwhile, in Nigeria, border security officers in Ogun state are working to deter illegal traffic in order to curb importation of Covid-19 into what the WHO has described as "a priority region in the battle against the virus".
