The global death toll from the coronavirus pandemic has topped three million. This comes as the World Health Organization warned that the world was approaching the highest rate of infections so far. The situation has been intensified by setbacks in vaccination campaigns globally and a deepening crisis in countries such as Brazil, India and France. Worldwide, there have been over 140 million cases recorded. Africa is reporting more than 4.4 million infections and nearly 118,000 deaths.

For details on the situation in Africa CGTN spoke to Dr. Ahmed Ogwell, Deputy Director at the Africa CDC.
