COVID-19 on the African continent

Published 6 May 2020

What would COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) look like in the DR Congo in the absence of physical distancing. Using an age-structured epidemiological model, the figures show how the reproduction number (R-number) will affect deaths and cases. Their results estimated that there would be 76 213 155 infections (95% CI 74 156 965–77 800 029) and 319 441 deaths (313 079–324 175) in the absence of physical distancing interventions.
