The World Health Organization has labelled the coronavirus as a pandemic, this as more cases are confirmed across Africa. Our correspondent in South Africa brings us the latest on how the government is preparing for the outbreak there. Also in South Africa, outrage continues over the dozens of women found to have been tricked or coerced into sterilisation at healthcare centres; many were diagnosed as HIV-positive. Finally, women in Angola are bearing the brunt of climate change as they often find themselves having to support their family during droughts in rural areas.
