The following article was published by The Palmer Foundation last August 19, 2020. It explains how Uganda, one of the poorest countries in the world, and having one of the worst health care systems in Africa, has not experienced the expected surge of COVIDcases and COVID deaths. 

Editor’s Note: This article has become relevant again with the Lancet’s new publication [see Lancet: 19 countries have suppressed community transmission of coronavirus]. How can a poor country with an equally poor health care system escape the devastating health outcomes of COVID-19 which has affected much richer countries? How can it have suppressed the virus, when much richer European countries continue to struggle with increasing infection rates? 

It couldn’t have been the lockdowns as evidence has shown that lockdowns had no impact on death rates [see Study: lockdowns, border closures, and testing had no impact on COVID-19 mortality which was also published by the Lancet].
