This week, we speak to Guillaume Rozier. The 24-year-old Frenchman has created an innovative data visualisation concept that is now helping decision makers and health workers mitigate the Covid-19 outbreak. His tool could be even more useful in the months to come in tracking the emergence of new strains of the virus.

Guillaume Rozier is a 24-year-old Frenchman who has developed a platform called Covid Tracker. As the name suggests, it helps track the evolution of the pandemic, particularly in France. He tells us more about his invention.

But first, the top prize for this year's France 24 RFI-Africa challenge app has been awarded to Amara Diawara from Guinea. He has developed a telemedicine app for professionals that facilitates online medical consultations but also gives access to health records and vaccination certificates. Our reporters in Conakry, Sarah Sakho and Malick Diakité, met this insightful businessman.

And in Test 24, we try the ZenBook Duo 14. It's no regular 14-inch laptop. The device's main selling point is the fact that it comes with two screens that fold neatly together.
