Countries in Africa have stepped up proactive measures and enhanced their capacity to test for the COVID-19 virus.
Health authorities around the continent have bolstered their surveillance and readiness to tackle the deadly virus, including the imposition of stricter health measures at ports of entry.
In this regard, the continent has received help from China, which has remained steadfast in its issuance of open and true information surrounding the virus.
China’s open information dissemination has served to better inform the world about the virus and also helped deal with the influx of misinformation passed around by some media.
China Media Group (CMG) has also been at the forefront in informing people across the world about the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent fight.
CMG has collaborated with various media outlets across Africa to reach more people with the true information and debunk false data.
In Zimbabwe, CMG journalist Gao Junya, attended a radio talk show at Capitalk 100.4 FM to give more insights into the fight against the COVID-19.
She outlined the Chinese government’s efforts in tackling the virus and its spread, and the results that have been realized so far.
