In tonight's edition: Nigerian hospitals struggle under growing numbers of coronavirus cases as the wait for vaccines continue. According to a study, around one in five people in Lagos have had Covid-19, well above the official national infection figures. Meanwhile in Niger, ruling party candidate Mohamed Bazoum is declared the winner of the presidential run-off. Supporters of his rival take to the streets with accusations of fraud. And as the world rushes to source Covid-19 vaccines, Guinea launches an Ebola immunisation drive in response to a fresh outbreak.
