According to a survey carried out by the Africa Center for Strategic Studies (ACSS), Nigeria, South Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of Congo are considered as countries that are most susceptible to the spread of COVID-19. While Cameroon, Ethiopia, Chad, Somalia, Uganda, Egypt and the Central African Republic are the next most susceptible group of countries. The countries in the two categories of the most susceptible to the spread of COVID-19 are mostly dealing with internecine conflicts. The study points out the link between conflicts and social disruptions which ultimately results in disease migration. The ACSS is a Washington DC based research center attached to the United States Department of Defense (USDD).
