COVID-19 Impacts on Trade Between USA and ECOWAS Region_April2020 (4) – Africangcc

African Countries may overcome COVID-19 quicker and stronger than Western Nations. The article of New Yorker of May 15, 2020, confirmed my COVID-19 assessment research article "#COVID19: Impact on Trade between US and Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS)" published on April 20, 2020. In this article, I noted the preparedness of African Nations compared to Western Nations and the United States particularly. Most African Nations took early preventive measures to decisively and aggressively fight against COVID-19. I witnessed these measures because, in early March 2020, I was in East and Central Africa, and the results speak themselves. For example, on May 17, 2020, the African Center for Disease Control reports 84,872 confirmed cases, 2,771 deaths, and 32,646 recoveries in 54 African Nations with a population of 1.25billion. Globally, on May 18, 2020, John Hopkins Center reports 4,769,177 confirmed cases and 316,898 deaths. In the same period, US reports 1,496,509 confirmed cases, 89,874 deaths, and 351,741 recoveries. I also recommended African Nations to remain on course and to avoid any overconfidence as this pandemic kills everyone without distinction of race, color, wealth status, etc. The very weak economy combined with Food Security is going to be the most challenging as many African Nations are progressively reopening up the key industries. African Countries shall consider restructuring their economies and West Nations to cancel debts for all African Nations!
