COVID-19 apparently has not taken a significant toll on the continent of Africa.  Presently, the death toll from the virus is remarkably low.  The country overall has identified a minuscule number of cases.  What related measures do they take to identify or keep the virus at such controlled levels?  With COVID in Africa, a very important factor is age—they have a far younger median age than the people of Europe.  This lends to discussion regarding how the virus is worse for older people.  Another factor is the warmer climate in Africa.  In addition, it is thought that some people had established immunity to the virus.  Additionally, Africa’s medical teams have experience to readily take on a pandemic due to prior medical problems of the continent.  For example, contact tracing in South Africa is already in place to handle tuberculosis.  Source:
