In Malawi, nurses stage a walkout in hospitals across the country over working conditions amid fears they won't be able to handle a spike in coronavirus cases. The strike comes amid divisions in the country over whether or not to implement a lockdown. Meanwhile in Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari has lashed out at bandits, who he says are taking advantage of the lockdown. Gunmen are responsible for at least 47 deaths in the north-eastern state of Katsina in recent days.
