With other researchers, Professor Abdoulaye Touré, lecturer in public health at Gamal Abdel Nasser University in Conakry and actor in the Response in Guinea, estimates that the number of cases on the continent is largely underestimated, in due in particular to the lack of testing in remote areas.

“Yes, since the start of this epidemic, of course, there have been a lot of efforts on the part of States, on the part of international organizations, in particular the African Union, WHO and other regional health organizations. , especially for West Africa – the West African Health Organization -, but we believe that these capacities still remain a little below the needs, because the screening capacities which are deployed in the various countries are mainly concentrated in capitals and within the country. The somewhat remote areas are a little poor relations, so there is a need to strengthen these capacities ”, he argued in the Africa guest of Radio France Internationale.
