The new corona virus COVID-19 poses a hazard to African nations with weak digital health infrastructure due to its undetected potential for transmission. The investigation of COVID-19’s global expansion, its mode of transmission, its differential effects on other populations, its mutations, and associations with treatment are all hampered by the paucity of data from all geographies. To support the fight against the virus, these data must be connected at the highest level possible.

It is crucial to build long-lasting and durable solutions to strengthen health systems in terms of capacities to prevent, respond, and innovate based on scientific understanding, as has been demonstrated by the 2014 Ebola outbreak and following crises. Global inclusion is essential in a connected, mobile world.
