Cameroon: Catholic Aid Agency Responds to Government’s Call for Help in Dealing with Covid-19

With 12,592 confirmed COVID-19 cases, 10,100 recoveries and 313 deaths, Cameroon reportedly has one of Africa’s highest infection rates and has been described as the “COVID-19 epicenter in western and central Africa.”

COVID-19 becomes the fourth emergency that the 25.2-million-population nation is dealing with, besides exacerbating Boko Haram attacks in the north, violent conflict in Anglophone west, and the Central African refugee crisis.
