April 13, 2020 Mozambique: Cumulative Shocks, Local and Global
As of April 10, Mozambique had registered only 20 cases of covid-19, and
was carrying out an active program of screening, testing, and contact
tracing for all entering the country. The success of containment was still
fragile, however. In addition, 10 of the tests were traced to a worker at
the multinational natural gas company Total in Cabo Delgado province, in
the far northeast. In that same province, reminding us that the pandemic
comes on the top of other urgent crises, jihadist insurgents are now
expanding their offensive and extending their attacks inland.
