As the COVID-19 pandemic takes hold in Africa, many governments have begun to tighten borders, restrict gatherings and close schools. How will the pandemic affect Africa’s supplies? How will it impact people’s ability to buy necessities and subsist?

This article explains that food supplies shouldn’t be too badly affected, but social restrictions will make it hard for many to buy and access food.
