The New York Times reports that there are 10 countries in Africa where the hospital does not have a single ventilator. Let's say that there are 55 countries in the continent of Africa. Speaking of south sudan, there are five vice presidents but there are only four ventilators in the country.



According to the World Health Organization, the total number of ventilators for a population of tens of millions in 41 African countries is only two thousand. As well as 170000 ventilators in America alone.
The WHO also said that of the 55 countries in Africa, there are only 4 ICU beds in 43 countries. That is 5 beds per million people. While Europe has 4,000 ICU beds for 1 million people.
