Despite negligible vaccination rates and the lowest rate among continents, the rate of Covid-19 infections has dropped by 20% in Africa over the past seven days, the World Health Organisation (WHO) reports.
Many have postulated reasons why the rates are so low in Africa, including attributing it to the widespread use of Ivermectin wonder drug, the use of anti-malarials, vitamin D and zinc generous use, BCG vaccination history and other reasons. While some suggest that the cases may be a bit higher but underreported, one cannot escape the fact that there are no widespread deaths as have been seen in India, New York, Italy and the like. Likewise it is suggested that cases are over-reported in Europe and America where deaths from all causes in Covid-positive are reported as Covid deaths.

Currently the African continent stands at 7.76% total vaccine doses given. But the majority of the continent has the lowest death rate.
“Africa represents 12.5 percent of the global population, but it accounted for just 4 percent of the 3.4 million deaths that had been reported around the world as of May 18.”https://news.northeastern.edu/2021/06/11/why-has-africa-suffered-fewer-covid-19-deaths-than-predicted/
The largest country, Nigeria has had only over 2000 deaths and only 2% total vaccination.
Interestingly, the countries with more than 100 vaccine doses administered per 100 people, have rocketing daily covid case rates. It is not certain whether these rates spurred the higher vaccination given or if the skyrocketing rates followed vaccination.
Mauritius and Seychelles (the most vaccinated country in the world), the two African countries with more than 100 doses per 100 people – over 100% vaccination– have some of the highest rises in cases as at August 2021.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) says that weekly COVID-19 cases in Africa fell by more than 20 per cent, the sharpest seven-day decline in two months as the third wave pandemic tapers off.
Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa, made this known during a virtual press conference on Thursday.
Quoting reports, she said that the African continent registered more than 165,000 cases in the week ending September 5, a 23 per cent decline from the previous week.
Mrs Moeti said that, however, due to the impact of more transmissible variations, the rate of slowing is slower than in prior rounds.
She said that the more contagious Delta variant that partly fueled the third wave has been dominant in several countries that experienced COVID-19 surge.
According to her, in Southern Africa, for instance, more than 4000 COVID-19 genome sequencing data was produced in August.
Mrs Moeti said that the Delta variant was detected in over 70 per cent of samples from Botswana, Malawi and South Africa and in over 90 per cent from Zimbabwe.

Many African nations that had been relatively unaffected prior to the vaccine rollout have experienced a surge in Covid cases since vaccinations began, including Namibia, Zimbabwe, Congo, Angola, Malawi, Kenya and Zambia."https://t.co/Ods97ozVwb

Israel, Iceland, Seychelles are now spinning off antibody-resistant variants *despite* their populations being maximum vaxed. Despite?
Despite? Look up ADE, people.
More likely "because."
