While many developed countries have been trying to reduce the number and rate of [COVID-19] infections so as to prevent their health care system from being overrun, African countries have no health systems to protect, says Jok Madut Jok, professor of anthropology. In his article, "Will African governments invest more in healthcare after Covid-19?," published in Daily Nation, Jok explores the challenges facing health care systems in Africa.

Jok was also cited in the Standard Digital piece "Science may never explain low coronavirus infections in Africa."
