Africa CDC, the African Union Office of the Youth Envoy, the African Youth Front on Coronavirus, Resolve to Save Lives, and Pandemic Action Network are partnering to launch Africa Mask Week to encourage people to rally behind the importance of wearing a mask to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Despite COVID-19’s continued spread in Africa, recent data suggest that mask-wearing is declining. It is vital that more people wear masks and sustain mask-wearing long-term to stop the spread of the virus. Until there are vaccines to fight COVID-19, wearing a mask is one of the best tools we have, especially when combined with physical distancing and hand washing. Get involved in the #AfricaMaskWeek on social media. Share a photo of your mask style and tag friends to join!
