The new Eco currency was meant to come into circulation on 1 July, but with countries all across the continent battling coronavirus, national and regional economies are taking a hit.

That inevitably begs the question: how much longer until Francophone Africa will have its chance to develop its new identity?

And will coronavirus inevitably change the course of its plans?
