We said last time that we hoped that, after the disruptions of the first months of the coronavirus pandemic, this edition would be able to present a more settled picture. Sadly, it is not so. As the Context section of this report shows, most of our countries of operation have seen a second wave of COVID cases in the first months ofprompting some countries to re-impose lock-downs and others to impose other restrictions.

At the time of writing, this wave seems to have fallen back, except perhaps in Kenya, having never reached Free Egmont sex case-lo seen in other parts of the world. Our Partners have continued to respond with energy and ingenuity to the challenges posed by the pandemic, especially for the vulnerable of people from which most of our beneficiaries come: the Portfolio section offers some examples.

We continue to worry that responses to COVID will distract from the attention that HIV and other long-standing diseases still need, from governments, donors and the victims themselves.

Kenya seemed to be weathering the storm early in the year, with relatively low case s through the first two months. But, starting in March, the country has seen a continuing high infection rate and recorded its highest daily tally of new infections on 26th Marchat 2, confirmed cases.

While the of deaths has also seen similar growth, the total fatality remains fortunately low, at 6, [2]. The report notes that most countries are not on track to meet critical testing and treatment targets that — if achieved — are predicted to finally lead to a long-term path out of the epidemic. In response to the pandemic, Zimbabwe enacted a strict lockdown, limiting movement and gatherings for all except frontline workers and essential services from 5th January to 15th February, with Free Egmont sex easing into March allowing informal traders to operate, non-essential work to continue and a staggered opening of schools.

In other countries, targeted areas faced restrictions or there were less severe national measures enacted. Kenya heavily restricted movement in five of the counties recording the highest caselo and enacted a curfew in selected areas. Mozambique introduced measures in Maputo to curb the spread inside the city and into the surrounding peri-urban areas. There have been calls for differing restrictions for the urban poor, who must engage in activities daily in order to meet their basic needs [4].
