Most countries on the continent have put in place measures to tackle to the pandemic.

But as the lockdown starts to bite, there are more questions than answers…

  • As Lagos, Nairobi and Johannesburg slowly fall silent, how do informal workers survive?
  • How are governments coping?
  • What are the geopolitics of the moment, the international response and the local fightback?
  • Will Kenya’s healthcare system get privatised?

We speak to our correspondents on the ground.

This podcast was recorded on 27 March – a few hours before Moody’s decided to downgrade South Africa to junk status, and before several countries declared new cases of coronavirus.
