Pandemia: la seconda ondata arriva in Africa

Il continente africano ha superato i 2 milioni di casi confermati di Covid, mentre i funzionari sanitari avvertono che le infezioni stanno ricominciando ad aumentare per l’arrivo della seconda ondata. Le foto dal satellite mostrano file e file di tombe riempite di recente nel cimitero di Olifantsveil fuori Johannesburg, in Sud Africa. Purtroppo il distanziamento sociale non è sempre rispettato, come si vede anche in queste foto (Foto AP / Jerome Ritardo / File)
