The Director-General of the World Health Organisation (WHO) has advised Africa to prepare itself for the worst regarding the Coronavirus.

According to Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, it is not prudent for Africa to rejoice over its low penetration into its continent.

Speaking at the WHO’s daily press briefing, he opined that there may be more cases that have not yet been identified and recorded.

“...we cannot take this number as the amount of, or the number of cases we have in Africa, probably we have undetected cases or unreported cases," he suspected.

Ghebreyesus warned that the continent must brace up for the worst so that it is not overwhelmed in case it happens.

“I think Africa should wake up, I think my continent should wake up,” the WHO boss warned.
