Cameroon’s COVID-19 Cases Surpass 2,000

The total number of reported COVID-19 cases in Cameroon surpassed 2,000 over the weekend, nearly two months after the country reported its first case, data from the Africa CDC shows.

According to Africa CDC, 2,069 coronavirus cases have been detected in Cameroon, including 934 recoveries.

Cameroon reported its first infection on March 6, an imported case from Europe, and has closed national borders and applied social distancing since March 18.


The death toll in the country is currently at 61, making the fatality rate in the country is 1.17% lower than the average in Africa, which is about 4.12%.

All 10 regions in the country have reported COVID-19 cases, with more than half of the cases detected in the central region where the capital Yaounde is located.

However, despite this,  the government decided to ease some of social distancing restrictions by allowing bars and restaurants to run after 6 p.m., and lifting passenger number restriction in public transport.

These changes were based on the recommendation of a study on the socio-economic impact of the pandemic, according to Cameroon government.
