How to protect yourself from the virus in your hot spots
There’s no such thing as a safe place to be in the heat, and the hot spots in the world that pose the greatest risk are the ones where the heat is highest.
Here are five hotspots where the risk of infection is the greatest.
Lusaka, Zambia It’s a city of almost 3 million people that has been battling the coronavirus epidemic for months now.
The country has been in a state of lockdown since November, as thousands of residents have sought refuge in government-run shelters and hospitals.
Many of the hotbeds of the virus have been left largely unscathed, but Lusakas hot spots are a breeding ground for the virus.
More than 2,000 people are living in Lusakinas hotels, most of which are located in the city’s commercial districts.
A handful of other hotel complexes have also been targeted, but according to Dr. Yemi Luska, head of Lusas Department of Health, there is no evidence of any health effects from exposure to the virus as the hot areas are mostly in the residential areas of the city.
Lusakans hot spots include the hotels of the famous Lusankas family, who have been running the hotel business for over two centuries.
Lausankas are known for their impeccable hygiene standards, and have become a popular choice among tourists and locals alike.
At the heart of Lussas hospitality is its renowned spa, which serves up a hot spot that is known for its spa treatments.
Lussans spa is known to have been the first in Zambia to offer a full-service spa, where you can indulge in treatments from the moment you enter the building.
The Gambia Located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa’s West African nation of Djibouti, The Gambias capital, Port Harcourt, has been the epicenter of the outbreak in recent weeks.
While the majority of the country has seen no new cases, the city has seen an uptick in cases in the past few weeks, with some reports suggesting the virus has spread to Port Harcour.
The city’s health minister has reportedly declared a state that would be open to the transmission of the coronovirus, and health authorities have also warned that some of the population have been experiencing the virus symptoms.
Guinea The capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Goma, has also been the scene of some of West African nations worst outbreak, with cases doubling from just over 4,000 cases in March to more than 50,000 in July.
A series of new cases in Goma has been reported in recent days, with officials reporting that the city is now experiencing an increase in the number of infected people.
While there has been no confirmation of an increase of infections in Gombe, officials have confirmed the virus is circulating and that the situation is not improving.
The outbreak has left Goma with more than half of its population living with the virus, with many residents having been infected themselves.
Senegal The country’s capital of Dakar has also suffered from the outbreak, having seen a sharp increase in infections from just a few hundred cases in April to nearly 3,000 at the start of July.
With the capital and the city of Dakara under lockdown, authorities have urged people to stay away from the capital, and to avoid the streets.
Many have been leaving Dakar for neighboring countries to seek refuge in camps, where many are suffering from the effects of the disease.
Senegal has also seen an increase, with reports suggesting that the country may now have a high proportion of the world’s cases.
Dr. Mohamed Abdoulaye, head doctor at the National Public Health Hospital in Dakar, said that Senegal has seen a dramatic increase in cases.
According to Abdoulye, Senegal has experienced a sharp spike in the rate of new infections in recent months, and reports suggest that the number is now increasing rapidly.
“I have not seen this many cases in our country since the last epidemic,” Abdoulay said.
