37 cures out of 39 confirmed cases and zero deaths, Eritrea has one of the best results of the countries affected by the new Coronavirus pandemic in the world.

Eritrea, which is ranked among the countries in Africa, was no exception. However, Asmara followed the recommendations recommended by the WHO, taking health measures with the aim of curbing the coronavirus as effectively as possible.


The reasons for this relative success are certainly to be found in the discipline of its population and the respect for the authorities. By questioning the international organizations present in the country, we came up with the following answers:

# The patriotic and disciplined population which has mobilized actively to face the challenges posed by this pandemic.

# Awareness-raising action on the part of the public and private media

# Effective prevention management on the part of the Government which very early closed its air, sea and land borders by putting all those who have arrived since the beginning of the epidemic in quarantine.

#  Effective measures to support families during the confinement period through direct aid from the
Government and Eritrean citizens from inside the country and from the diaspora

# Support and care for the most vulnerable by local communities. With a population of 4.5 million, a government which has made equal opportunities for all its citizens, the pole star of its policy which translates into free education and health for all, Eritrea is an example to follow in Africa. The peace agreement signed with Ethiopia and the resumption of relations with the international community, suggest a future very promising. Already, housing, road, port, sanitary and hotel construction programs will create hundreds of thousands of jobs, and encourage the return of a diaspora that has always been recognized for its patriotism and dynamism.
