Effects of Covid 19 on Women and Girls in Africa
It has been proven historically that pandemics, epidemics and conflict have a greater devastating effect on women and children and leaves those in the minority even more vulnerable. This is because of women’s low economic status in society. The pandemic which in its nature is noble and evolving is more adverse to the elderly has not left Africa unscathed. The most affected countries are South Africa, Morocco, Algeria, Nigeria and Ethiopia.
