African-Wide Study of Antibodies for Coronavirus
An Africa-wide study of antibodies to the coronavirus has begun, while evidence from a smaller study indicates that many more people have been infected than official numbers show, the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says. https://t.co/WTk4Nhnw0V

Health Editor’s Note: Smaller studies have shown that there may be more people who have had coronavirus than have been reported. In this continent of 1.3 billion people, confirmed cases and deaths are relatively low which may be due to poor data collection which has complicated efforts. Africa has a mean population of 19 so this could be a factor in lower numbers of cases. Also, a person can have the virus and remain asymptomatic and carry on life as usual (while spreading coronavirus) but not adding to the count of cases…..Carol
