Eswatini's PM dies


Probably because of lack of testing, the number of African cases and deaths that are reported remain low.  This is a reminder that despite low official figures Corvid-19 is still a problem in Africa.

The government of Eswatini says Prime Minister Ambrose Dlamini has died, four weeks after he tested positive for coronavirus.

A government statement said Dlamini, 52, died on Sunday afternoon in hospital in South Africa.

No cause of death was mentioned, but Dlamini had recently been receiving treatment for Covid-19 in South Africa. 

Dlamini had been prime minister of Eswatini, formerly known as Swaziland, since October 2018.

With a population of about one million, the country has recorded 6,768 coronavirus infections and 127 deaths linked to the pandemic, according to the health ministry.
