Declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO), Covid-19 has not left a single continent or country unscathed. With the international race on to find the cure and to slow down the alarming pace of the curve and deaths, Africa, is witnessing a delayed rise in cases as the virus spreads with governments implementing regulations and lockdowns to try to limit the spread of infection.
To contain the spread of Covid-19, international lockdowns have become critical. However, the cost and implications on economies has become unimaginable. Apart from travel bans and border closures, various categories of consumer spending have been prohibited, harming per-capita consumption.
Broll Property Group’s recent ‘Covid-19 Africa Report’ details how some of Africa’s countries are dealing with the pandemic as at the end of June 2020, how their respective industries such as retail, office and industrial have been affected and, what government initiatives and responses have come out of this ordeal.
