CAF teams up with Speak Up Africa to protect one billion Africans against COVID-19
Stay Safe Africa urges Africans to play their part against COVID-19 by following proven prevention methods.
Cairo, May 19, 2020 – Today, the Confederation Africaine de Football (CAF) strengthens its commitment to helping African communities protect themselves and those around them from the emerging threat of COVID-19, by partnering with Speak Up Africa through the Stay Safe Africa campaign.
In Africa, there are currently over 84,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 2,771 deaths. Several risk factors mean the virus could spread quickly across the continent. High population densities, communal living as well as the constrained access to water and washing facilities all increase the likelihood of coronavirus infections and fatalities.
