Coronavirus, fear for Africa. Giobbe Covatta (Amref): There, the virus should not get. There are sufficient facilities
the ROME - While Italy is facing a time of extreme difficulty between shops closed, and the population is closed in the house, the thought also comes to where the Coronavirus has not arrived. Parts of the world where the epidemic is hitting the Europe could have consequences, if possible, more serious.

The delicate part of the world. If in Italy, as well as in China and South Korea, the healthcare system fails for reasons and with different methodologies to take charge of the health of the population, in other areas this would not be possible. In some countries of Africa, for example, the sanitation facilities are not sufficient. Talking about it is Giobbe Covatta, testimonial from years of Amref Health Italy, which, like the rest of Italy is facing this difficult time. “The african – says Covatta - system is precarious, especially at the level of health care. If in South Sudan comes the Coronavirus, is not that you can address to the doctor. The less facilities there are, the less doctors there are, the less presence of the State there is, and the higher the risks. Everything is proportional, to the ones that are the capacity of the Country, and if we are in difficulty ourselves, that we have the health care system best in the world, I figured the South Sudan, which has the health care system the worst in the world. The hope of these Countries is not able to contain the virus, the hope is that you get there. The problem, on the other hand, is that there probably will come”.

don't go. For the moment, the cases of infection recorded in the african continent are for the most part is attributable to tourists, volunteers or workers in the european or in asian continent. A limited number bodes well for the future. To keep the situation under control, some states have urged foreigners to not travel in their territories. “All those who have invited us to the starting – continues Covatta - they didn't do it maliciously, but to avoid the expansion of the virus. More the percentage of infection is high, the more the expansion is large, and the better stay at home. It is not a question of sympathies, it is true of all, to prevent the virus to go around the world. And even more so for the africans. If we carry the virus to the South Sudanese, the Country is ruined. You have to rightly protect”.

The unbearable precariousness. Talking about Africa is always reductive. The deep differences characterizing the various systems states that within them can present scenarios in opposition to it. What is common to most countries, however, is the coexistence with the emergencies that may be social, economic or environmental. Not to speak of the epidemics (the last in order of time, who has made thousands of deaths, is the ebola). “Africa is the continent of precariousness – ends Covatta - The problem is that emergencies there are often. Italy, in principle, with shoulders sufficiently wide to support an emergency, or to afford, say, a banality, to quit the Country. There will be many consequences, many shall come to poverty: but if it did, a Country in Sub-Saharan Africa, abandon the population to itself. The precariousness is what makes the difference between a third-world Country and a Country with a secure income and predictable.”
