Sudan Braces for Second Wave of Covid-19 Cases

Acting Health Minister Osama Ahmed Abdul Rahim has warned that there will be more cases across the country, hinting at a possibility of new restrictions. Rahim said that while various strategies are being implemented to prevent the spread of Covid-19, it was facing funding shortages. The pandemic has added strain to other health issues, including the outbreak of malaria and polio. The country has reported 15,830 confirmed cases, including 1,193 deaths, although the figures are believed to be higher, due to limited testing being carried out.
