Now more than ever, it is paramount that African countries initiate more aggressive and robust strategies to effectively contain the pandemic. Although, currently an effective vaccine is ready, its distribution is limited, and hence an important way in which to reduce transmission is to identify and isolate individuals who are contagious.
