La pandemia raggiunge l’Africa rurale

 

Matrida Tendayi, from Dema communal lands east of the capital Harare, Zimbabwe, talks at her homestead Wednesday, June, 23, 2021. A new surge of the coronavirus is finally penetrating Africa’s rural areas, where most people on the continent live, spreading to areas that once had been seen as safe havens from infections that hit cities particularly hard. Tendayi, who is 100 years old, said she is too frail to walk to the nearest clinic in Dema -- even if it had vaccines available. (AP Photo/Tsvangirayi Mukwazhi)

La nuova ondata di Coronavirus è riuscita a penetrare anche nelle aree rurali dove vive la maggior parte delle persone del continente africano, diffondendosi in aree che un tempo erano considerate rifugi sicuri dalle infezioni che invece colpivano duramente le città. Molte persone anziane non hanno forza sufficiente per raggiungere a piedi le cliniche, lontane dai villaggi, dove potrebbero ricevere il vaccino. (Foto AP/Tsvangirayi Mukwazhi)
