There are now more than over 300,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus across the continent, with a number of African countries imposing a range of prevention and containment measures against the spread of the pandemic.

We shall keep updating this list largely sourced from the John Hopkins University tallies, Africa CDC and from official government data.
