COVID-19 has killed more than a million people around the world. When COVID-19 emerged, it was assumed that Africa would be hard hit, but the impact from its disruption is likely to be much larger than the impact of infection. Ethiopian Health Minister Dr. Lia Tadesse joins CFR Senior Fellow for Global Health Dr. Tom Frieden to discuss trends and trajectories of COVID-19, the impact on primary health care, and other health risks in Africa.
