An understanding of the COVID-19 spread is growing around the world, yet little is known of Africa. This paper explores the time-space geographies of COVID-19 infection focusing on Africa and Nigeria especially. We appraise the global-to-local situation of confirmed cases, deaths and recoveries as well as measures engaged in response to the pandemic.
Findings reveal that South Africa accounts for 40% of the total confirmed cases in Africa, followed by Egypt (18%), Nigeria (6.8%), Ghana (4.6%), and Algeria (3.6). Our study shows a significant relationship between population density and COVID-19 cases in Nigeria (R2 = 0.76; y = 2.43x - 268.7). This expression suggests that high population densities catalyze the spread of COVID-19.
