Statista dossier on the coronavirus pandemic in East Africa

This dossier features key information related to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in East Africa. The continent has far lower figures in number of cases and deaths, in comparison to Europe, Asia, and America. Even though, the outbreak is expected to slow-down the economic growth, specially due to measurements taken to mitigate the spread of the virus. This study provides an overview of the pandemic in Africa, before focusing on East Africa, the fastest developing region in the continent. A special focus is given also to Ethiopia, the Eastern country with most cases of COVID-19, and to Kenya, the largest regional trader.
