Covid-19 Pandemic – Then, Now And After

Date: January 22, 2021 – Time: 2:00 pm (Cameroon time) – Duration: 120 mins

Venue: Zoom Online


Background

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a global threat and one of the most catastrophic the world has ever witnessed. Since its outbreak in Wuhan China in December 2019, the world has faced devastating consequences as this posed a threat to global health, economy, and security. This outbreak has shown the continuous need for a bold and concerted global effort in the fight against pandemics of this nature.

The first case of COVID-19 in Cameroon was reported early in March 2020 and the country responded in a number of ways; from partial lockdowns, wearing of masks, physical distancing to name a few. This outbreak has also shaped the activities of the Denis and Lenora Foundation. The Foundation has been actively involved in the fight against the coronavirus in Cameroon. There has been health education campaigns at the level of the community, distribution of face masks and hand sanitizers, creation of a COVID-19 task force, daily COVID-19 updates on the Foundation websites, organization of virtual events on the response and impact of the virus, among others. As a continuation of the activities of the Foundation to fight against COVID-19, this webinar is therefore aimed at bringing together experts from the Foretia Foundation to discuss the theme: COVID-19 pandemic – then, now, and after.
