dc.description.abstractThe phylogenetic analyses that have been done on the emergence and causative agents of the 2019 novel Coronavirus Disease have focused on the epidemiology and the identification of the specific causative agents linked to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome for Corona viruses (SARS-COV), the viral pathogen that causes SARS-COV-2 (Currently, COVID-19). The virus is associated mostly with bats’ genetic composition that’s detrimental to Human cells if in contact. Although there are readily established measures to curb the outbreak and transmission of the disease, there is much yet to be done especially in the affected African countries where most medics rely on the abroad research guidance. The world’s Medical attendants have been left with a dire need to establish the sufficiently effective and immediate measures and/ or guidelines on how to minimize the outbreak and widespread interspecies infections of SARS-COVs. Apart from the ways identified by the World Health Organization, there are several other strategies that the African countries can rely on to mitigate the outbreak of SARS-COV-2 which has always been diagnostically experienced as respiratory tract disorders: Pneumonia. Among the widely implemented measures in most nations are: quarantining the suspected victims and infected individuals, partial/total lockdowns, abolishment of (over) crowding, abolishment of bare handshakes, encouraging keeping of the social distance, use of gloves and masks, use of disinfectants on public resources and premises, using sanitizers for hand washing and banning air transport to prevent import or export of new COVID-19 infections.en_US
