FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Ebola can be tackled in Africa even amid Covid-19, expert says” – below is their description.

Our guest is Paulin Basinga, Director of Health, #Africa for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. He says the “resilience” of people and health programmes in place across Africa mean both Ebola and the coronavirus can and will be tackled. Basinga spoke to us as Guinea is dealing with a new outbreak of #Ebola which has caused at least six deaths and as many other African countries are still dealing with #Covid-19. He says the experience of tackling a variety of health issues means the continent has an advantage in knowing how to treat and contain such problems.

    It’s known for the Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve, in the southeast. The reserve protects a forested mountain range rich in native plants and animals, including chimpanzees and the viviparous toad. On the coast, the capital city, Conakry, is home to the modern Grand Mosque and the National Museum.
